Netflix’s new low-cost subscription model has a hidden catch

Hi. Yeah, let’s get right to the rundown first. Could it be *** netflix scam email many of you reaching out to me asking about *** potentially suspicious email you keep getting from netflix. I have the details on what that email really is. Then you may be able to ditch some of your charging devices soon. The new rule that could be coming to tech companies around the world and yes, those apple chargers may be changing again. Finally, something we won’t be thankful for is thanksgiving food, price hikes. What’s costing you more this year? We’re getting into it. We have the list first. Let’s tackle netflix. I’ve been getting messages and tweets from you like this one here is just one example Debbie wrote to me. What’s up with an email I just received from netflix about profile transfer. Do I disable or enable? All right, here’s the deal. This is the email right here that that’s being sent out. It is *** real email from netflix. This is not *** scam. This is the first phase of netflix cracking down on account sharing. They’ve been saying they’re going to do it now. They are they just launched this profile transfer feature. If you’re on an account with other people that lets you switch to *** brand new account without having to rebuild your profile. So your list of movies to watch your favorite shows what you’re watching right now won’t just disappear. Netflix says this is for people who situate nations may have changed. Maybe you’re moving out of your parents house or you just ended *** relationship and kick them off. Or maybe too many people around the account. You get locked out too much. But the bottom line is they want everyone to have their own subscription. That’s what this is really about. So if you do want to transfer to your own account now, here’s what I want you to do. Go to the profile icon in the corner, click transfer profile to create it. That’s it. Next. It’s official. This week, the european union, the EU adopting *** new ruling that could have *** major effect over here in the US, it’s called the common charger law. Pretty basic, right. It means that by 2020 for electronic devices in the EU, including cell phones and tablets will all need to have the same kind of charger, The USB c charging as the universal standard. And now Apple execs say it has to adapt its products to that standard. They know way out of the law for them. Well, there are no laws here about standardized chargers. Some lawmakers have pushed for them and tech companies like Apple already saying, hey, if we’re doing it for europe, it may make sense to make changes globally. So in *** couple of years we all Apple and android users, we could come together for the first time, right? We’re gonna have the same charges perhaps by 2024 we’re going to continue to follow this. Finally, inflation is hitting the thanksgiving dinner table last year, the american farm Bureau Federation. They put out their annual thanks giving dinner cost survey. It showed prices jumped 14%. But experts warn this year will be worse. Here are the foods you’re gonna be paying more for it first, your turkey, alright? You’re gonna be paying at least 17% more for your turkey this year compared to last year, canned fruit. So your cranberry sauce, for example, prices are up 18.6% this year, frozen and refrigerated bakery Products, your pumpkin pies, I think it’s worth it but it’s up 20% and what you need to bake things is even more expensive. Flower up 24% butter butter is up 32%. So if there are things you can buy early store in the pantry or freeze do it now. So this doesn’t all hit you at once. Plus prices continue to go up so grab it as soon as possible. That’s all for today. Back to you.

First it cut down on password sharing by incorporating a tiered subscription system ($9.99 for one device, $15.49 for two, and $19.99 for four).

That includes some pretty big titles, ranging from network classics like “Friday Night Lights” and “Grey’s Anatomy” to new hits like “The Crown” and “Cobra Kai.” Other notable shows excluded from the ad plan include”Breaking Bad,” “New Girl” and “The Good Place.”Loss of a few movies seems like less of a deal-breaker, but it should be noted that some feature-length films will also be blocked (“Skyfall,” “The Imitation Game, “The Bad Guys” and “28 Days”).
