Learn to Safely Share You Log-in Credential for Netflix, Hulu, HBO and Other Streaming Services

Most families share their log-in credential between its members and some even share them with their friends. Some streaming services do not mind this happening, however sometimes this practice could result in losing the service due to policy infringement. This article will mention the most popular streaming services and what they feel about sharing your logins with family and friends.

Netflix: a relaxed sharing policy

The CEO of popular streaming service, Reed Hastings, has declared that it is ok to share your account logins with family members. This is why Netflix allows subscribers to create their own profile into the account, and thus every profile receives its own recommendations.

The approach Netflix uses is that the limitation of simultaneous streams will determine everyone to subscribe separately.  The packages offered are: the basic (7.99$ a month, one simultaneous stream), the standard (9, 99$, two simultaneous streaming) and the premium (9, 99$, four simultaneous streaming).

Hulu: multi-profile support

This streaming service is not as relaxed as Netflix and has a stricter simultaneous streaming limit: one logged in device at a time. It might be inconvenient if you share your credential with other family members and try to watch a TV series at the same time they are enjoying a movie.

HBO GO and HBO Now

HBO has to streaming options: HBO GO for those who already have HBO cable subscription and HBO Now for the rest. The company does request their subscribers not to share their password, due to security reasons, but it still allows maximum thee simultaneous streams.

Amazon Music

Amazon allows fully paid-up members to use Amazon Household. The latter allows two adults and maximum four children to share the login credential for a total of 99$ a year.
