NETFLIX, the global streaming service, gives you access to thousands of TV shows, films and original productions. Find out how to log into Netflix online and just how many people you can share your login details with.
Netflix‘s basic streaming subscription starts at as little as P90.00 a month, with pricier and more enticing options available. Regardless of your Netflix package, you can access the streaming service anywhere in the world with the exception of China. And Netflix allows you to stream your favourite films and shows directly to your smartphones, consoles, laptops, tablets and smart TVs. Here is everything you need to know about signing up, logging in and sharing your Netflix login details with your close ones
How to log into Netflix streaming online?
When you first visit Netflix.com you’re greeted with an option to start a 30-day free trial of the service.
You can watch Netflix for a whole month free of charge as long as you opt out of renewing your subscription before the 30 days are over.
But should Netflix prove too irresistible to give up, you will need to pick one of three subscriptions during the signup process.
Netflix Basic at P90.00 offers unlimited streaming on one screen at a time on all compatible devices in Standard Definition.
Netflix Standard at P110.00 bumps up the streaming quality to High Definition and lets you stream all content on two screens at the same time.
Netflix Premium at P130.00 is the priciest option but it comes with all previous perks and gives you the opportunity to stream Netflix to four devices at once.
After you select your subscription package, simply create your account by filling in your email details, a strong password and payment method for your monthly bill.
The setup process will also require you to create one or two account profiles, including a child-friendly one, which will be personally tailored to your own tastes and streaming preferences.
This is where you can create a separate profile to share with a partner or family member.
Netflix will start to charge you only after the initial 30 day trial period is over.
Once you are all done and ready to start streaming, head on over to Netflix.com and hit the red Sign In button.
Netflix will ask you to input the email and password combination you chose for your account.
Then, simply select whichever profile you want to watch and start streaming away.
How many people can you share your Netflix login with?
Because Netflix gives you the option of creating multiple account profiles and lets you stream to various devices at once, you have the opportunity to share your details with someone you know.
Depending on your streaming plan, this means anywhere between one to three additional people could be using your account.
The number of users that can stream at the same time will depend on your Netflix plan
On the Standard plan, you can have one more person stream Netflix to their device while you are watching your own shows.
On the Premium Netflix plan, three people can watch Netflix alongside you on their phones, tablets or laptops.
If at any point you receive a login error saying your account is already in use, this means your allocated number of streams has maxed out.
This is not a problem on the Basic plan, which only gives you access to one stream at a time.
Netflix said: “If you’ve shared your Netflix account with friends or family, they may be using Netflix while you’re trying to watch a movie or TV show.
“The number of users that can stream at the same time will depend on your Netflix plan.
“You can see the limit for your account, as well as other plan options, from the Change Plan page.
“To solve this problem, make sure that no one else is using your account before trying to stream again.
“If you’re not sure what other device was streaming, check out your recent streaming activity.”
