Six streaming services that will let you share an account since Netflix pulled the plug

No need to panic, we have options.

When Netflix announced it was pulling the plug on account sharing, our hearts skipped a synchronised beat. After all, who isn’t still logged into their ex’s account?

It seems our days of piggybacking off friends, partners and even neighbours are officially over – if you’re only subscribed to Netflix that is.

You see the beauty of living in the digital age is there are many, and we mean many, options out there when it comes to streaming services.

You’ve got the unofficial home of HBO, BINGE, which houses all our favourites like The White Lotus and House of the Dragon, as well as Prime Video, Disney Plus and so much more.

So, we’ve done the hard work for you and found some of the best Netflix alternatives that will let you stream and watch binge-worthy shows now.
