Netflix

Netflix seem to have suspended downloads except for the main account holder.... or is it just me.

It's been telling me for the last couple of weeks that I have "downloads on too many devices" when it is clearly not the case, and not something I have encountered before.

Anybody else?

Re: Netflix

I can still download and not the main account holder - just renewed a previous download and tried a new working.
Working fine.

I did see somewhere but can't remember where that the 4 device rule was going to be limited to one household whereas at the minute it can be any 4 devices anywhere.

@Mayfly 

Yes I caught up on that one and wondered if that might be why.

Guess I'll check with others that have piggy backed onto the same (my daughters) account. I did think about asking my her but I did not want to sound ungrateful?

I think the one household thing was a code would be sent to the email address and you'd have to enter that.
Not a problem if it's your daughter, more to stop randoms sharing the account I think Smiley

Re: Netflix

Just checked my connection (never use it much) and it was fine. There was an option to up grade the app which I didn't do in case it refused my access 🤣

Re: Netflix

Hmm, curious.

Will need to check it out.

BBC iplayer no problem, and even when I clear the device (Kindle in this case) Netflix still refuses to download. 

🤔
