    Netflix Streaming Question

    So the previous tenant in my house left the tv. The tv has a Netflix button and she's logged in so I've been enjoying Longmire, etc. for free. What are the potential pit falls of this? Do the videos I watch change her recommendations or could she tell that someone else is using her account? I'll be paying for it once she figures it out I'd just like to postpone that.

    she can tell what you watch. it makes recommendations based on your viewing, and asks to resume viewing where you left off. When you log in if it asks who's watching if theres more than one option, don't choose her.

    No real downside other than her noticing another user and changing her password. Recently watched would be a quick giveaway but she may notice a second user account too but it wouldn't always be as visibilible. I'd prob try and set up a second account. Call it something that sounds like she might have set it up by mistake.

    I spent that particular eight dollars on a Ballast Point Sculpin IPA.

    I just did. I thought it was more expensive and I get one free month. Plus I figured you all didn't want to hear that I don't watch tv so paying for it isn't something I'd normally do. Making a Murderer is excellent.

    I gave my daughter my login particulars and quickly forgot that I did - I may have been...um, drinking. Anyway, I was seeing recommendations based on movies I hadn't seen, and couldn't figure out why. There's a moral or some kind of point here somewhere.
    And I guess that I just don't know

    At least have some fun and queue up a bunch of weird shit for her to watch. These guys are boring princesses.

    Queue up all the digital fireplaces, lesbian love stories, and anime.

    Longmire is ridiculous. I decided that after watching every episode.

    Funny you bring this up, have an account but picked up a second apple tv unit this year and it came with the prior owner's nflix acct. the experiment is six months in, no issues. Fwiw I rarely use that tv for nflix, my gf's account handles the binging.

    If you get arrested be sure to holler atchaboi, don't need no stinkin charges.

    Truth stranger than fiction. Can't for the life of me believe that young retarded kid was put away... Avery is a separate issue but the boy? Christ, he can't even hold a conversation without getting lost.

    My guess is that if the tenant left a TV she isn't all that worried about her Netflix account. I doubt there is any Netflix account that isn't being shared--isn't the limit 3 sparate devices at the same time, so obviously Netflix is expecting this. If you can reach the tenant you might get an HBO Go account and share with her.

    All Netflix could be tracked using viewer's activity under account. You can clear your watching history.

    Timely bump. I’ve been on pins and needles for 4+ yrs waiting for the appropriate plan of action.
