(CNN Spanish) — Netflix reported this Tuesday that it decided to discontinue in five Latin American countries the “add a home” function, which at an extra cost allowed adding a new place to view content outside the home.

According to the company, these functions will no longer be available in Argentina, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and the Dominican Republic.

“After listening to consumer feedback, we decided to discontinue the ‘Add a Home’ features in Argentina, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and the Dominican Republic,” indicated the company in a blog post.

The “Add a House” option features were introduced in July. In Argentina, for example, “to use your Netflix account in additional houses” you could “pay 219 pesos per month per extra house. Members of the Basic plan can add one extra house; those of the Standard plan, up to two extra houses; and those of the Premium plan, up to three extra houses,” the company said at the time.

So, goodbye to the payment for sharing the account? Not so fast…

While at first glance it appears that Netflix has backed away from charging users to share their accounts, that’s not entirely the case. In fact, the company’s plan is to continue charging for account sharing, although it plans to do it in a more “simple” way.

“We will focus on making it easy for people who share an account to transfer their profile when starting their own membership, and for all members to easily manage their devices and create sub-accounts (“extra member”), if they want to pay for family members or friends,” the company said Tuesday.

The “transfer profile” option was enabled worldwide this Monday. Basically, it allows a user to move their profile from a shared account to a new account (when they decide to pay for it).

Meanwhile, the option of “extra member” it is, in a nutshell, to pay an extra amount for each user who uses a single account. In Argentina, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and the Dominican Republic, this function will be enabled in early 2023, while in Chile, Costa Rica and Peru this has already been implemented since March of this year.
