In the United States, Netflix already displays a warning to some users when they are logged in from a different home than the account owner. For now, the caveat is “unknown”, but it is possible that in the near future companies will adopt ways to avoid “over-sharing” of accounts (when the same user splits into more than one family).

A good tactic to avoid boredom and save money is to “rotate” between subscriptions. From time to time, it is worth moving from one service to another, getting to know other services and taking advantage of new and new developments.
