    So my family is heading back to India and I would need to get Netflix at home there. I wanted to ask if there are any netflix account sharing groups or so here ? I guess it is the highest Rs. 800 plan shared among 4 people right ?

    PS: If this is not allowed, please delete the thread.

    Updating the OP with the group I am in. If any one else wants to put their group member details here, please update this thread at the end and I will copy paste that in the OP or PM me the names of those 4 members.

    Netflix allows 4 screens, so you can use on 4 devices at a time max. Needs to be honoured by the persons to ensure no one uses on more than 1 screen.

    Looks like it is risky.... everyone must be very honest and know each other at the personal level.

    Also, the person who provides need to be the most honest and make sure he didn't share the account info to his family member once he starts rent his account.

    To be on the safer side, its better for 2 people to share the price.

    It may look risky, but TE has had some v good members over the years. We have seen organizing of Group Orders and collaboration on other things. Knowing people at a personal level is def good for many things in life, but that becomes a source for major issues as well since people tend to take advantages. I would rather seek professional people via forums to avoid straining of relationships in real life.

    This NF account sharing can, and should become another good endeavour as the pricing model of NF is utterly ridiculous, to begin with. The price is not justified and to counter that, people ought to come together to offset the damages.

    We can open a FS kind of thread and the person who opens the thread can invite 3 others to participate in that thread. Once the 4 people have been confirmed, other members should refrain from participating in that thread. Only those 4 and Mods (if needed) should be allowed.
    The primary owner of the account buys the subscription *after* receiving Rs. 200 from rest of the 3 people. This needs to be like prepaid service. The main owner buys the account and shared the credentials (privately) with other 3. All of those make their profiles and use the service using their profile only and preferably on their primary device (TV etc) only.

    This is just a sample of how things may work but there are many caveats. People with multiple TVs or streaming boxes in each room needing to use, people wanting to watch while they travel and want to download a local copy (netflix restricts download to I guess 2 devices or so).

    Netflix is aware of account sharing and they seem to be OK with it. "We love people sharing Netflix"

    I would love to have one account too. How does this work? Will we be able to create 4 profiles with one account?

    Just a small FYI to people who are sharing account.
    You can only Download at 4 devices linked to a single account. So if you have two phones you can only download on 4.
    Streaming is 4 at a time.

    You can create as many profiles as you want. Only watching is limited to 4 streams at one time. I might have 2 slots to share. Payment can be made via PayTM every month.

    I am interested. My usage profile:

    * I have multiple devices but I am the only person in my home who use it, so one device at a time.
    * I don't use it in mobile, so no means of app using login in the background.
    * I don't download Netflix contents ever.

    Am I eligible for account sharing?

    Sure. Your usage profile matches my brothers who is the main account holder. I am a serial downloader though, because of slow net speeds at my place.
    Gonna PM you for further details.

    Replied PM.

    My download is zero (through Netflix) because of 1Gbps connection. And when I download (through other sources), it is 40GB complete Blu Ray for Dolby True HD/DTS-HD-MA. ;)

    I suggest the main post be updated regularly with something like Group name (with distinct nomenclature like alpha/beta/charlie/tango etc names for group with Standard connection, blue/orange/red etc names for group with Premium connection), no./name of members, vacant slots, share per head etc.

    This will give a person instant info about the status and scope of joining a group, minimize time wastage and the ability to make an informed decision overall.
