Ed Williams, boss of Edelman UK, told the convention: & # 39; It is no surprise that 42 percent of people say they have a subscription using someone else's login name. & # 39;

He said he was also involved in the practice by allowing his son's former nanny to view Netflix on his account after she returned to her native Australia.

He emphasized: "Questions are asked about value for money.

"More than six out of ten people are becoming more price-conscious and this becomes a bigger problem when Disney Plus, Apple TV, Britbox and others come online [as streaming competitors]."
