Netflix with let you stream to four devices at once with upcoming $11.99 family plans
If you felt restricted by the two simultaneous logins your Netflix streaming account allowed before, now the terms and conditions of the new $11.99 plan will let you stream to four devices at once.

"A few members with large families run into our 2-simultaneous-stream limit. To best serve these members, we’re shortly adding a 4-stream plan, at $11.99 in the U.S," says the Netflix quarterly results letter.

The company also comments that less than 1% of its members are expected to actually use the new offer, but is making it nonetheless for those who want to stream on tablets, smartphones, computers and TVs at once. No official date for rolling out the $11.99 family plan with 4-way streaming, but the launch shouldn't be far behind.

This somewhat contradicts a previous article i read about netflix not being happy about "account sharing." why would they make it so you can stream 4 devices if thats going to promote more account sharing? regardless, this sounds good to me since im away at school and my sisters back home love to watch catty teen drama's ALL. DAY. LONG.

Now this is out... how's the parental controls now? I must say... Netflix parental control sucked pretty bad. I hope they did something to fix that with this new plan. I wouldn't mind pay a couple extra bucks for this, but the parental control got to work better than it did.

This just means four devices can all be playing video at the same time. You can still log in to as many devices as you like just as long as only two of them stream at once
