Considering it's 52 week high is $700, a gain from $240 to $272 isn't moving the needle that much, but it's still a positive sign I guess, although it's at the same price as Jan 2018.

Check to make sure your internet has enough bandwidth to stream in 4K.

If bandwidth is good, make sure no one else is using your wifi, like a neighbor that figured out your password. Try changing the password.

In the same vein, there are wifi analyzer apps that can tell you if you are getting interference on the wifi channel that you are on. I put my cable modem by my family room set, so everything is hard wired (TV, gaming systems, etc).

Here it comes:


People are going to claim the sky is falling but I think overall it's a good thing for subscribers, because if you are sharing you're basically subsidizing the cost of the subscription and if that cost isn't worth a single household, then people drop and Netflix rethinks their pricing.

But there is already a 2 screen or 4 screen limit on accounts, so sharing is limited already. I'm curious on their method to crack down, is it limiting TVs and dongles to connect to the same router? Will they not allow me to use my tablet at the gym?

If you look at their homepage they have a section about "sharing your netflix" along with language that states that your netflix account is for a single household:
https://help.netflix.com/en/node/123277

But basically I doubt they flag you if you use it periodically somewhere else. If you're constantly using it simultaneously at three different locations that's probably where they start cracking down.

Yeah, they already know that my account is being used in three states, I can look at the devices on the account and see where they are registered, so I'm easy picking if they all have to be from the same household. It's just a matter of whether my daughter at Georgia Tech is not considered part of the household anymore, and will cost a $3 upgrade fee. Same with my other daughter. If there is an inexpensive option to allow my kids to use it, I suppose it's not that big of a deal, just another price increase.

Re: Netflix - News & Discussion

I think I mentioned it before, but I can see this plan backfiring...

I currently share my account with my youngest son. My oldest has his own account. I could add him to my account, as well, and split the cost with him. So we'd each pay slightly more than 1/2 of what we're currently paying.

The only drawback would be if they didn't allow you to move a profile to an existing account. One of us would end up having to create a new profile in the 'master' account. Certainly a minor inconvenience for a decent price reduction.

Re: Netflix - News & Discussion

The “home” feature better not be based on IP address like Hulu Live. Sometimes I have to reset my modem and it grabs a new IP address. I’m not going to pay a fee when Netflix thinks I’m someone else.

Unless, the “home” feature doesn’t allow two screens for two different IP addresses at the same exact time - except when paying the additional fee. I can roll with that.

Re: Netflix - News & Discussion

Does Hulu live kick you off when you reset your modem and get a different dynamic IP? Nothing should be that strict unless they want a ton of complaints. I'd think they'd use a combination of approximate geolocation (which isn't exact of course), simultaneous use, what devices are connected and how often they connect. No way they should flag you for getting a new dynamic IP.

Re: Netflix - News & Discussion

If your modem gives you a new IP, the next time you launch the Hulu app, it asks you to set your new Home location. You’re allowed 4 “home” locations in a calendar year. Not entirely sure what happens after the 4th location change.

Of course, it does its job well of restricting password sharing.

Ad Tier Netflix subscriptions apparently get screwed out of content

Wow, I didn't even realize this was a thing, I assumed ad supported meant all content but with ads.

Guess they are punishing the subscribers who are trying to save money and can’t afford the expensive tiers.

I don’t know why this is being treated like shocking, out of left field news. They said last month when it was announced that “a limited number of movies and TV shows won't be available due to licensing restrictions, which we’re working on”.

I mean I figured there would be a few licensed shows that had some restrictions, but some of these are their own "originals" and I'd have thought they'd have nailed down the contract language on those before launching this. If their hands are tied, that's one thing, but if they are intentionally restricting shows that's another.

None of those shows listed in that tweet are Netflix owned.

Has the ad tier started yet? Who is advertising so far?

I keep saying that if you can afford to eat out, fast food included, and buy Starbucks then you can afford the $19.99 tier plan.

Imagine if they somehow acquired the Super Bowl?
