Family subscriptions

I am familiar with three websites that offer a family subscription:

a) Netflix - movies
b) Spotify - music
c) SPH - news

Spotify has a good way to manage the authorised users. Netflix and SPH has an inferiour way.

Spotify allows the subscriber to register the email address of up to four authorized users. Each user enters his own email address and password. The user can also use Facebook to login.

The Netflix and SPH websites register only the subscriber email and password. The subscriber has to share the credentials with the authorized users. To retain privacy, the subscriber has to create a new password for the account, instead of use the regular password.

Spotify wins.
