Pay-TV companies crack down on password sharing by streaming viewers

Sixteen percent of U.S. broadband households admit to either using someone else’s credentials to stream cable TV or sharing their login info with someone outside their home, according to Parks Associates. The TV industry’s losses from password sharing are expected to rise to $9.9 billion by 2021 from $3.5 billion this year, the research firm estimates. That lost revenue is especially important because the pay-TV industry is already losing subscribers to cheaper online rivals like Netflix.
