British Prime Video commented on the situation in a funny way on its Twitter, posting a graphic about sharing a password by users.

This Netflix solution was tested in Chile, Costa Rica and Peru in early 2023. Now they have been introduced not only to Poland, but also to the United States and many other countries around the world.
