When it comes to OTT platforms, the first name that comes to mind is Netflix. For those of you who have not heard of it, Netflix is an American video streaming service that started off as a regular DVD renting service back in 1997. Today, Netflix commands the lion’s share of possession in the streaming market followed closely by the likes of Amazon Prime Video and Disney+ Hotstar.
After getting a good run as a DVD rental service, Netflix introduced Video streaming and on-demand video services in 2007. The company had its first expansion to Canada in 2010 followed by a rapid expansion to Latin America. They entered the content production business in 2013 when they debuted their first original series ‘House of Cards’ which was very well received and is streamed by users even today. In January 2016, it expanded to an additional 130 countries and then operated in 190 countries.
Netflix is now available as a built-in or downloadable application on most smart devices today, including Smart TVs, smartphones, laptops, and more. The app is free to download but in order to enjoy the content on offer, you will have to subscribe to one of the available plans.
If you have subscribed to one of the Netflix subscription plans, the next thing you want to do is start enjoying the HUGE library that you have at your disposal. Over the years, Netflix has introduced new ways in which users can enjoy their Netflix content, starting with the default web browser version to dedicated apps for smart devices.
There is no limit on how many devices you can login with your Netflix credentials but there is a limit on how many of those devices can simultaneously stream content. This limit depends on the tier of subscription you have opted for, but even then, for the highest tier, the maximum number of devices that can stream content simultaneously is four.
Now, if you have logged into a lot of devices with your Netflix credentials and you want to sign out of one of them, this is how you can do it.
