Dark web has been offering various streaming services on the internet for cut rate prices cheaper than a monthly subscription

Hackers have started offering various streaming services on the darkweb for cut rate prices, according to McAfee security labs, part of intel security.

Users can go on these websites and buy access to services such as netflix, Spotify and HBO.

Raj Samani, chief technology officer at Intel security, is quoted by Tech Insider as stating that offering these services to people is a highly lucrative market and there is serious competition.

Some even offer guarantees of lifetime membership for as little as $0.50 (£0.33) for a Netflix account.

In Samani's report, he said compromised accounts can be shut down, causing weeks talking with customer support to get the compromised account back. When the account is retrieved customers risk a  possible loss of loyalty points or other benefits.
