A Third Of Netflix Watchers In The US Don’t Pay For Netflix

Netflix, at least publicly, isn’t concerned about account sharing. CEO Reed Hastings called it “a positive thing” at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. Hastings argued that many of the “moochers”—most of whom are young people—go on to become paying subscribers once they get older and have money of their own to spend.

A recent report by Parks Associates estimated that the streaming video industry loses $500 million a year to mooching. Netflix declined to comment.
