Netflix Question...Does anyone know

If I go out of town and decide to watch Netflix, but I have someone still using my account at home- will it work? Or will netflix disable the other IP addy so it can't be used in multiple locations? ..I know I"ll have to check with them tomorrow or something to be sure, just wondered if anyone knew offhand.

Thanks.

  • You can use 5 different devices at once. If you go over 5...it will disable one and then you can always just log back on later and it will disable another one. You will have no issues even if you are watching at the same time as another device. We have our Wii, PS3, XBox, and 3 computers that use it. Sometimes we are watching a different thing on 3 of them :)

  • It should work. My husband and I have added movies to our queues at the same time, but on different IP addresses. I'd safely assume that yes it will work given that.

    They probably have a limit to two IP's or so at once, since it'd be ridiculous and cause an uproar if married couples had to have separate accounts in order to access their Netflix when one is away on a business trip or something.
