How Many Devices Can You Watch Netflix On?

If you bought a Netflix account and tried to share it with your friend, here we show you how many devices are allowed on different Netflix accounts.

If there is more than one member in the family who likes to watch Netflix then there is probably a lot of competition for the home screen. In the average household, there are 3 devices at least, but you may be limited to less depending on the type of Netflix account you have.

Today we're going to learn a few key facts about different Netflix accounts and how many devices you can run on each.

Three Different Types of Netflix Subscriptions

When you sign up for Netflix, you have exactly three different subscription options to choose from. Each of these accounts has some features to offer and different limitations. Below you will find more information about each account.

  • Basic Account

For £ 5.99 per month, you can sign up for a basic Netflix account that will let you stream movies, series, and shows on a single screen.

With this account, you can use Netflix on your laptop, TV, phone, and tablet without any problems. Of course, when you get this account, let's say that you do not have the option to watch movies and shows in HD and you can have £ 4.99 with the first-month discount.

  • Standard Account

You can purchase a subscription to a standard Netflix account for £ 9.99 per month, which will allow you to watch movies and shows on two screens at the same time.

With this account, you can still use your Netflix account on all devices and even view the broadcasts in HD version. Let's say that with the first-month discount, you can have £ 7.99 right now.

  • Premium Account

Premium Netflix subscription will cost you £ 13.99 per month and will allow you to watch movies, series, and shows on four devices simultaneously. Let's say that the premium account is free for the first month, and you will get a discount for the second month as well that the cost will be £ 10.99.

You can watch it on all devices as well as use Ultra HD broadcasts.

How Many Profiles Can You Have?

Netflix has a multi-profile feature that will allow a few members of your family or some of your friends to choose different preferences. If you have little ones in your family, you can open them in a kid-friendly profile. You can create up to five profiles per Netflix account you sign up for. So it may be time to change the Netflix password on your ex 😄

Is Sharing Your Netflix Password a Good Idea?

Is Sharing Your Netflix Password a Good Idea?

Netflix password sharing has been a very popular topic lately. While Netflix does not limit your account by IP address, some local laws may restrict this practice. But most lawyers agree that Netflix won't treat you like a criminal for sharing passwords with friends or family, so you don't need to hide, you can open the curtains again. Even the CEO of Netflix stated that password sharing could be a good thing.

However, on the other hand, with the tweet below from Forbes magazine, we may see that Hulu, Netflix, and HBO will make additional efforts to block those who share passwords soon.

Password sharing is pretty common for Netflix users right now, but we'll see if that changes in the future as some believe Netflix's big investors will pressure the company to restrict password sharing due to lost revenue.
