What is a Netflix Original?

When you’re browsing Netflix, you’ll see “Netflix Original” on more and more videos. But what exactly is a Netflix Original?

Netflix accounts on iPhone

Sharing Netflix accounts: increasingly difficult

When you have a subscription to Netflix, you can watch all these movies and series. Officially, you can only use the same account within your household. It does not matter whether you watch on iPhone, iPad or on television. However, accounts have been shared with friends and family members for years. That is why Netflix has been working for some time to prevent account sharing.

Netflix account verification

Verify account

Recently, some viewers who shared an account were notified that multiple families are using the account. You were then asked to join or verify your account. After clicking verify, the (real) owner of the account received a code that you have to enter in Netflix.

The figures also show that Netflix keeps a close eye on how many accounts watch a movie. During Code Conference, Netflix didn’t just show the number of hours a movie or series was watched. A top 10 with the number of accounts that watched a movie or series was also revealed.
