Can I use Netflix in 2 different houses?
Yes, Netflix allows users to share their account with others, even if they are in different locations. This means that you can use Netflix in two different houses, as long as you are the account holder.
A Netflix account is meant to be shared by people who live together in one household. People who are not in your household will need to use their own account to watch Netflix. Learn more about sharing Netflix. Account owners can buy an extra member slot and invite people outside their household to use Netflix.
Second home or frequent travel to the same location
From the main place you watch Netflix, connect to the internet, open the Netflix app or go to Netflix.com on a web browser on your portable device once a month, and stream a TV show or movie for a few seconds to establish a connection.
A Netflix account is for use by one household. Everyone living in that household can use Netflix wherever they are — at home, on the go, on holiday — and take advantage of new features like Transfer Profile and Manage Access and Devices.
While there are some methods, such as using a virtual private network (VPN) or a proxy server, that claim to allow users to access content from different regions, Netflix actively blocks such attempts and has been known to terminate accounts that violate their terms of service.
Select the option I'm Traveling. What about traveling far, far away? Netflix notes that watching outside of the country you signed up in can temporarily influence your TV and movie lineup (as some programs may be on a different service overseas).
“To ensure uninterrupted access to Netflix, connect to the Wi-Fi at your primary location, open the Netflix app or website, and watch something at least once every 31 days,” the company wrote. “This creates a trusted device so you can watch Netflix, even when you're away from your primary location.”
Yes, you do need to complete your Netflix change of address when moving house.
Account holders can add more people outside of the household for an extra $7.99 a month, or they can use the "transfer profile" feature to prompt extra users to make their own accounts that they pay for, Netflix said Tuesday.
So you have two options: transfer your friends and family members mooching off your account to a new membership or share your Netflix account for an additional $8 monthly fee.
How will Netflix know who is in your household?
Netflix detects password sharing through analysis of IP addresses, device IDs, and usage patterns, allowing them to identify instances of shared accounts and address them accordingly.
Netflix will have ways of knowing if you are still sharing your account with someone outside of your household. That's because the streaming service collects a lot of data about you, including what you watch, where you watch it, the location of your home, and device IDs.
“A primary location is set by a TV that is signed into your account and is connected to your Wi-Fi network. All other devices signed into your account on that Wi-Fi network will be associated with your primary location and will be able to use Netflix,” it says.
That means that almost anywhere in the world, all you have to do is log in to access Netflix's local catalog of TV shows and movies. But you'll likely find that many of your favorite shows and movies are not available on Netflix in other countries due to content licensing restrictions.
The country on your account can't be changed unless you move to a new one. If you have moved recently, see Moving with Netflix for details. Using a VPN to access Netflix will hide your region and only allow you to see TV shows and movies available to all regions globally.
Once you are successfully logged in on a smartphone or tablet, you should be able stream on it from anywhere. You can still travel without issues for up to a month. People will need connect at the primary location once every 31 days to avoid being logged out of the account.
Watch while you travel: Members can still easily watch Netflix on their personal devices or log into a new TV, like at a hotel or holiday rental.
Your selection of TV shows and movies may change. Your choices for streaming and downloading will vary by country. Audio and subtitle options may change. Maturity ratings are different by country.
A reliable internet connection is essential for streaming Netflix on your hotel TV. Most hotels offer Wi-Fi access to their guests, but the quality of the connection may vary.
Netflix promises that users traveling for short periods of time (roughly around 7 days) can continue to enjoy the streaming service. However, if you are traveling for long periods of time, your access will be blocked.
Can I watch downloaded Netflix abroad?
Can I watch Netflix downloads in any country? It depends on whether Netflix has the content license in the country you're visiting for the movie or show you want to watch. Geographical restrictions that limit streaming titles in certain countries also apply to downloaded movies and TV shows.
Sharing a password with a user outside the household costs the owner of the account $8 per extra person, on top of what they're already paying for their Netflix plan. If you're on the standard Netflix plan, you can add one person outside your household. Premium users can add up to two.
If you want to add two extra out-of-household profiles to your account, for example, you'll need to pay for the $19.99-per-month plan plus two additional monthly payments of $7.99 each. That comes to about $36 per month. Extra memberships come with a few restrictions, too.
“The Netflix service and any content accessed through the service are for your personal and non-commercial use only and may not be shared with individuals beyond your household unless otherwise allowed by your subscription plan.”
It's now become clear that Netflix is going to continue with the ban on sharing passwords, after its results for the third quarter revealed a surge in subscribers.
