Discovery made this evening...
Netflix has restored Playback setting for individual profiles. During the summer, the video playback settings for all profiles were linked to whatever the main profile was on. It remained that way for several months. Don't know how long it's been since it was corrected. The last time I checked was sometime during October. I can't recall checking it at all after the fall tv season kicked in.
So if you're closely monitoring your data usage, and want to exercise greater rationing during the month, setting limits on various profiles to watch non critical shows or movies, is again possible.
On a pc/laptop or tablet. Go online to Your Account, and look down the list for Playback Settings.
Dazed and confused over high tech.

They're not com-tastic!
