Some membership plans allow you to watch simultaneously on more than one personal computer or Netflix ready device at the same time. If you are on the 1 disc out at-a-time plan [or stream-only plan], you may watch only one device at a time. If you are on the 2 discs out at-a-time plan, you may watch on up to two devices at the same time. Members on the 3 disc plan can watch on up to three devices. The maximum is four devices simultaneously, and that is available for members on the 4 or greater discs out at-a-time plans.
However, there have been cases were certain Netflix members were able to stream to more than one device. For instance, me. I run it on 5 different devices. All work fine. At one point, I even ran them all at the same time with no problem. But if they were to restrict it now I’ll be left with 3 choices:
- Pay considerably more for a combo disc-rental/streaming plan which unlocks a corresponding number of concurrent streams. If you want two concurrent video streams, you will need to pay $19.98 a month, which also allows you two mailed DVD’s out at a time. Three streams (and DVD’s) runs $23.98, four: $29.98;
- Sign up for a second Unlimited Streaming account at an additional $7.99 a month;
- Forget about Netflix.
