Carlo Sallazzo used Netflix to pass the time until he received a double lung transplant, according to CTV News. But with new regulations imposed by Netflix, which require devices to register with a home Wi-Fi network every 30 days, the man could lose his access.

“Coming home every 30 days seems reasonable from Netflix’s perspective, but there are a lot of situations where it’s used very poorly,” Sallazo said.

For a fee of $7.99 per month, users can add additional members outside of their residence. The man, who is currently in hospital, believes it would be foolish to pay the extra amount in his case. Netflix did not respond to CTV News’ requests for comment.

If Netflix doesn’t change his music to accommodate him, Carlo Sallazzo will find another company to entertain him.
