Andy Samberg’s Password Sharing Gag at the Emmys Is No Joke for Streaming Services

Login credentials are meant to be shared among members of a household, sure. But according to research firm Parks Associates, unauthorized sharing can add up to about $500 million in lost revenue for companies like HBO, Amazon, Netflix, and Hulu, which USA Today says are used by around 58% of Americans.

Although some of those companies don’t consider password sharing to be a major issue, a poll by USA Today found that 36% of adult Americans who use premium TV streaming services have shared their passwords before.
