The Netflix crackdown on password sharing is in its early days in the U.S., but it appears to be having the effect the streamer was looking for a boost to its subscriber base.
Since alerting its members in late May of its new password sharing policy, Netflix had its four single largest days of signing up U.S. customers since data provider Antenna began tracking the service. In that time, Netflix has seen nearly 100,000 daily signups on two of the days, according to the report from Antenna.
