According to Variety, the new feature was designed to motivate subscribers to keep paying for a membership even if they don’t watch as much or even if nothing interesting is playing at the moment. Some users may find it easier to keep their memberships instead of cancelling and signing up again later.

Variety was also looking at the section been designed to prevent users from dropping their subscription even if Netflix does a price hike. The last time Netflix raised its rates was early last year, adding $1 on top of its most basic plan in the US and $2 on top of its $11 standard package.
