The Intellectual Property Office (IPO) in the UK recently announced that sharing passwords for online streaming services such as Netflix is against the law and breaks copyright law. It is common in the UK for people who do not live together to share their streaming service passwords, despite this typically being against terms of service agreements. While it may be unlikely that anyone will face prosecution for password sharing on Netflix, there are still consequences to consider, including account suspension or termination and financial losses for the streaming service. If you want to legally access Netflix content, consider setting up your own account or a joint account with someone you live with and share the cost of the subscription.
It’s official: NVIDIA has announced the end of the GameStream service for Shield device owners, including Shield TV streaming boxes. Scheduled to be discontinued via a planned update in mid-February 2023, this news will no doubt be a disappointment for fans of the popular gaming feature. However, Shield device owners can still use alternatives like Steam Link or GeForce NOW to stream games to their devices. The NVIDIA Shield TV itself remains a top choice for gamers, with its powerful processor and support for 4K HDR playback, a range of controllers, and access to popular streaming services.
