Netflix is changing its policy that restricted U.S. streaming-only customers to a single device at a time for watching TV shows or movies to let them use at least two devices simultaneously, a company spokesman said Wednesday.
"No Netflix member is limited to less than two concurrent streams," Steve Swasey, Netflix vice president of corporate communications, said in an e-mail.
That's a change from Netflix's previous policy. "If you are on the Unlimited Streaming plan, the Unlimited Streaming + 1 DVD out-at-a-time plan or a limited streaming plan, you may watch only one device at a time," the company says in an FAQ on its site.
