Netflix: how shared subscription works

Prima di enter the live of this tutorial and spiegarti how shared Netflix works, it is necessary to make a necessary premise regarding the use of shared accounts on the famous video streaming service.

It will be useful to you that, as reported in the Netflix Terms of Use, sharing of your subscription is allowed as long as you only involve the components of your own household. This means that it is not allowed to use an account shared with friends or relatives who are not part of that core.



Furthermore, if your intention is to share Netflix in a public place, you must know that the famous video streaming service is intended exclusively for a personal and non-commercial use and, consequently, the public screening of its contents is not allowed.

How to activate shared Netflix

After the necessary initial premise, you are ready for activate shared Netflix by choosing one of the subscriptions that allow the viewing of content on multiple screens at the same time and, consequently, access to your account by several people at a time.

In the new screen that appears, select the option See the plans and choose the subscription that you think best suits your needs. Depending on the current promotions, a shorter or longer free trial period (max 30 days) may be available.

  • Standard (11,99 euro / month): allows viewing of Netflix HD content and allows simultaneous playback of up to 2 devices. The ideal solution for those who want to share their account with another person in their household;
  • Premium: (€ 15,99 / month): in addition to the possibility of viewing Netflix contents in Ultra HD and 4K, it allows playback of up to 4 devices simultaneously and, therefore, to 4 people at the same time.

I point out that in both cases, for the contents that allow it, viewing in offline mode is also available, which allows you to download the contents of your interest on smartphones, tablets and PCs with Windows 10 (through the appropriate application) and watch them without occupying a vision "slot".
