If you are a Netflix subscriber, you may or may not have noticed that the company limits the number of simultaneous streams you can receive. In fact, each account can accommodate no more than two simultaneous streams. Now, Netflix has decided to introduce a Family Plan, which increases the limit to four.
Netflix is currently charging subscribers $7.99 per month, which allows for up to six devices and a maximum of two simultaneous streams. During a recent shareholders meeting, the company slipped in a new idea of introducing a Family Plan that will increase the monthly fee to $12 and provide up to four simultaneous streams.
Netflix hasn't announced an official launch date for the new Family Plan. Although the company doesn't think most will take advantage of it, I'm guessing some of the 29.17 million subscribers might be interested.
Do you need four simultaneous streams from Netflix? Has the two-stream limit affected you?
