Watching two different shows on two separate devices on the same account

Jump to solution

Watching two different shows on two separate devices/TVs on the same account. I have an Ultra and getting a Streaming Stick+ for another TV. Can we watch different shows on the separate devices/TVs at the same time using the same account, or do I need to log in to two separate accounts?Thanks

That is dependent on what you're watching. Netflix allows multiple streams with their higher tier accounts, but I believe only a single stream with their base account. Other providers might only allow one stream per subscription. But if you're thinking of sites that don't require a user account, and most likely the majority of other providers, two simultaneous streams should not be a problem. Usually you have to get beyond 3-4 streams at once before you might encounter a problem.
