(KMOX) — Do you share your Netflix password with friends, family, or your ex?

About 15% of Netflix and Hulu viewers admit sharing a password, and while those services don't seem to mind, your cable company doesn't like it.

Charter, which does business as Spectrum and was formerly based in St. Louis, compares password sharing to piracy. According to Fast Company, Charter is pushing channels to limit the number of simultaneous screen and to force viewers to log back in more often.

Fast Company says Charter's latest deal with Disney says the two companies will work together on new rules and techniques to cut down on sharing log-ins for channels like ESPN.
