Are you staying in a loveless marriage because you cannot stomach the idea of starting a new Netflix account and losing access to years of adding shows to your list that you will likely never get around to watching? It's okay... Netflix has a solution.
You can now move your Netflix profile with all of the many algorithmic learnings the streamer has made about your viewing taste. The feature is rolling out to Netflix users and once available for your account, you will receive an email.
Here's how Netflix are selling the feature:
“People move. Families grow. Relationships end. But throughout these life changes, your Netflix experience should stay the same,” Netflix’s blog post announcing the feature reads. “Today, we’re launching Profile Transfer, a feature that lets people using your account transfer a profile — keeping the personalized recommendations, viewing history, My List, saved games, and other settings — when they start their own membership.”
Of course, the feature isn't really about failed relationships - it is more about Netflix making it easier to get people to move to paying for their own accounts amid a password sharing crackdown.
