How does Netflix primary location work?
Does primary location mean I pay one set price regardless of where I subscribe or where I stream? If so, that's pretty darn nice. If not, what happens when I move? Update: Netflix also has a new pricing and payment feature. Read that here.
I recently signed up for Netflix, and a new service announcement caught my eye - a big fat price increase on their subscription. It didn't take long to figure out that I'd be eligible for the price hike if I subscribed from a non-U.S. Region in any country. And my initial suspicion was correct. According to the announcement's fine print,
Pricing is based on Netflix's current U. Market average (in 2023 dollars). Prices may differ in countries outside of the United States.
That implies to me that, regardless of my chosen country, Netflix simply takes the average price of each country's Netflix plan as the price I pay for the US market. The pricing table Netflix provides to users shows us how much is left. In my case, after these two things are deducted, I've still got room to spend money (the table doesn't always show Netflix's plan accurately).
Here's the table: The amount of time you spend watching movies is listed, along with the amount left over to watch stuff on demand.53 left on top of my existing plan. That's not bad for watching two seasons of House of Cards and three seasons of Arrested Development, since they're both very popular shows.99 Streaming plan I originally signed up for, for which all I get is access to movies I rent.

Can I use Netflix in 2 different houses?
I have a question about Netflix. Can I use the same account in two different houses, and if so, how?
I have a Mac and a PC. I have Netflix on both computers, but on my PC, it's set to stream only on my computer. But, I have a lot of friends who want to watch on their computers. So, I was wondering if I can change the streaming option to the TV instead of just the computer, and if so, how?
Thanks! -Bryan. Answer: Yes you can! If you use the same login and password for your account it works perfectly fine! The problem with your ISP is that they are not allowing you to access the Netflix website from a computer outside the local area network (LAN). This is what is causing your error.
It's not a problem with your computer but rather your Internet Service Provider. They are not allowing you to access the site outside the LAN. This is usually done to protect the network from outsiders trying to get in.
You may be able to find an ISP that will allow this, but most likely you won't be able to find a computer that will allow you to connect to the Netflix site. This is why you have to have multiple computers.
Is it possible for me to access netflix on my computer via my cellphone? I know this is sort off-topic but I didn't know where else to post it. I'm currently in the process of trying to cancel my Verizon contract because they keep sending me bills for services I never asked for and don't want. My contract is up in February. When I called to ask them to cancel, they said I'd have to wait until the end of March. I've been checking my bill every month and each month it increases. The number of "tasks" is also increasing. One time it was 2, then 5, then 10.
I want to cancel now, but I'm not sure what the best way to go about it is. If I call my provider and ask them to cancel, they say I have to wait for the end of the month. Is there a way to cancel without them knowing?
Thanks in advance.
Should I set primary location on Netflix?
Will it help me in the future?
I have a secondary location in the Pacific. I've already watched two seasons of 'The Walking Dead' from here. What I mean is that they air the same show on their website but the actual episodes are available a few days before in this area. The rest of the US gets them when they get released. I also watch some shows from Japan, the UK, Australia, France, Spain and Greece. I have so many options to watch new shows every day. How am I supposed to choose if I don't have any kind of guide as to which is the best one? Should I always go for the US version to be more up to date or should I go to the foreign one just because I can't be sure of the quality of the translation? Or should I set a default location, let's say I pick it every time?
This is the most crucial question and there is no "right" or "wrong" answer but it is a subjective choice. If you set your default location to America, then the content on Netflix will be what the majority of us around the world would be watching at that particular time. I know we have had the "I want to see the newest episode" arguments on a show on Netflix, but if you want to be more selective about what you watch then you need to look at all the information being released by Netflix and go with what you think you will like.
