Sibling dispute over Netflix subscription - Who is right?
in General

By agsragsr 861 Pts
There are 2 brothers involved in this minor disagreement.
Brother 1 has Amazon prime, HBO, and Showtime subscriptions that he is activity using.
Amazon prime fully allows (and encourages) prime subscribers to share their account with up to 5 family members, and he shares that with his brother. 
He also lets his brother share his showtime and HBO credentials, so "Brother 2" can watch it on his mobile device on demand.  There are no adverse effects for  Brother 1 to let Brother 2 share any of these accounts.

Brother 2 had a Netflix subscription for many years. He always let Brother 1 share his Netflix account.  Recently Brother 2 realized that he hadn't been using Netflix subscription for awhile and has no interest of using it going forward.  So, he let Brother 1 know that he is cancelling his subscription to Netflix.

Both brothers generally have a good relationship and constantly borrow stuff from each other.  There are many other things that Brothers borrow from each other.  Both brothers do well financially and it is not a matter of financial burden but principle.

Brother 1 argument:
It is unfair for Brother 2 to cancel Netflix subscription while he is borrowing the other 3 subscriptions.

Brother 2 argument:
It is totally fair. Brother 1 is using these services (amazon prime, HBO, showtime) regardless, but Netflix subscription is only used by Brother 1.  

I am one of the 2 siblings in this minor dispute.  DebateIslanders, Please help us settle this disagreement.

  • They need to keep Netflix. I will go with the brothers paying. Although, Amazon Prime is a rising star in the market.
  • Keep Netflix, let he brothers pay for it.

    @juretsearch, since only one of the brothers have use for netflix, wouldn't him paying be essentially giving money to brother1 without any use for himself? The other products they are sharing provide value to both brothers.
    I agree with you regarding amazon prime is gaining strong value.

  • I agree with you @agsr , Amazon prime is coming ina me fats with Amazon expanding. They could invest some money into it additionally.

    Brother 2 should pay up and get Netflix.   Most likely the only reason brother 1 doesnt need it, is because he now has Prime, hbo and Showtime.    Since he is getting free subscriptions, it would only be fair to return the favor and pay for Netflix.
  • I agree with you @tocik17 .
  • agsragsr 861 Pts
    @whitenstional, and @tocik17 ;but since the point of sharing is to actually share assets that are used by both.  Brother 2 shouldn't have to pay for something that he is not using just to let the other brother use it.  Brother 2 doesnt need Netflix, regardless of the other subscriptions.

  • Agree with @agsr . Live new points feature, can now see popularity based on different stream.
