Keep this in mind:

Q:
Can I watch movies instantly on more than one PC or Netflix-ready device?
A:
Some membership plans allow you to watch simultaneously on more than one personal computer or Netflix-ready device. If you are on the 1-disc-out-at-a-time plan, you may watch only one device at a time. If you are on the 2-discs-out-at-a-time plan, you may watch on up to two devices at a time. Members on the 3-disc plan can watch on up to three devices. The maximum is four devices -- available for members on the 4-or-greater-discs-out-at-a-time plan.

Your account can have up to six unique authorized devices activated (and associated with it) at any given time, including personal computers and Netflix-ready devices. For example, if you're on the 1-disc plan, you can have up to six devices associated with your account, but you can only watch one of them at a time. If you're on the 2-disc plan, you can have up to six devices activated but can only watch two of them at the same time.

Guess that's a change from the past. Before I had the one disc plan and my roommate and I would watch at the same time in different rooms.

So I stand corrected.

Should work on 2 devices at the same time--could get buffering issues depending on how much bandwidth you have etc.

Only issue I could see with 360 is it requires a gold account--not sure if you can be signed in on 2 360s at the same time. If you can, it will work (or if you have 2 gold accounts in your house).

Otherwise you could stream on 360 and another device like a laptop or Roku box etc. at the same time in different rooms as long as nothing has changed since the last time I've done that.


Keep this in mind:


Excellent! Thanks to the both of you :bow:

It depends I think, because I have the 1 disk out at a time plan, and we can watch streaming on my 360 and ps3 at the same time any given time, but when I try to stream via PC I can only do it on the PC, no 360 or ps3 at the same time.


Also anyone remember "My so called Life" on MTV years ago? Might be to chick flickey but they're bringing it to streaming in March... It's been a really long time since I've seen that... the chick with the red hair, is about all I can remember lol

Whoops.. guess I should add that when I did have the one at a time plan a couple months ago, I was able to watch on multiple devices. So yeah, you can do it, it's just a matter of being caught.

SVU watchers, have you noticed how many stars are in the first few seasons? Just guests though, not the lead characters... I'm in season 3, and I've already noticed 4 people from CSI and the chick from Bones, was in one last night... crazy

SVU has quite a few gust stars. One of my favorites was the one with Jerry Lewis as Munch's uncle.

That's interesting, but I'm pretty sure its not true. I was using a PC to watch scrubs last night, while my wife was in the living room watching the cosby show on the PS3. It may be policy, but I don't think they enforce it.

We have trouble with hulu plus on more than one device, though.

6 devices is definitely the max. We get a Netflix subscription (3 out at a time + blu-ray) for my parents every year and this year my mom got an iPad and tried linking Netflix to it and we got an error message saying there were already 6 devices connected so I had to disconnect my PS3 so they could use it. Right now we've got (1) their iPad, (2) their PS3, (3) my 360, (4) my iPhone, (5) my iPad and (6) my laptop.

anyone have a good starting point for the x-files? Not really wanting to watch 9 seasons of it but defnitely want to watch some of them. Should I just start at the beginning or is there a good place to start later on down the line?


start from the beginning. if you dont want to watch the whole thing google a list of the "x-files mythology". x-files mythology is a 4 dvd set that was put out with episodes only central to the main x-files storyline. no monster of the week episodes and such. just the central plot.

I started watching 'Louie', pretty funny IMO. So far I've watched most of the episodes and only one has been a clunker (ep 11). Ricky Gervais is a guest on episode 3.

If you like dark humor you should check it out.

I loved that show. The episode when he takes his date to the pizzeria was hilarious. Definitely not a show for everyone though.

I like Louie as well, but I really loved his last series Lucky Louie even more, that show was hilarious once it got going... a shame HBO pulled it too quickly because the ratings for it grew over the course of the season it was on

Louie has been on the Opie & Anthony show a number of times and on one occasion he did go into details about why the show was pulled. From what he said that HBO did love the show but the new CEO if Time Warner did not like Louie CK or his brand of humor so it got axed.

I'd love for it to be all the Trek shows, but i have a feeling they mean TOS. Happy to see Twin Peaks, Cheers, and Frasier up there though.

TOS used to be on streaming. I am hoping for all the trek shows as well as I've had the urge to watch Next Gen lately and I really don't feel like shelling out all the money for the complete series box set.

Why have TOS come back to Netflix? Would not be surprised if it was Enterprise in HD considering it's been nearly 10 years since the show first aired.... I wouldn't mind voyager, even though I hated the series.

They take stuff off and bring it back later all the time.

Reason being the studio gives limited periods of streaming and sometimes renews them later after a period of time.

I'm sure Netflix would prefer to have everything up permanently, but ultimately that's up to the studios who hold the copyright.

TNG and/or DS9 would be my picks. TNG airs on BBCA right now too.

edit-Speaking of stuff that has been up forever, does Netflix completely own the rights to Sliders or something? as much as I like the show, it's been on there forever.

I'd guess somethings the studios just give pretty much permanent rights to because they aren't selling dvds anymore anyway.

Before you know it things will be like they are on Star Trek anyway... you walk into a room and say "Computer. Star Trek: Deep Space 9. Season 3. Episode 13. Play." and the shit just starts playing on the nearest video device.

Someone loves their Kinect way too much huh? ;)

I am truly wondering how much storage space Netflix uses to house these movies? I am also wondering why recent movies (like PoP) aren't in HD streaming...perhaps they are getting low on space? :|

Is that how Kinect works? I've never even tried it! Maybe I need to though... I also wonder how their servers can handle potentially thousands of people accessing the same movie at the same time.
