If everyone used their own profile within the account, you wouldn’t see each others history or recommendations! Plus with the Spotify sharing thing, nothing stopping the lead account holder removing everyone and running away with 100+Euro, surprised it hasn’t happened before!

Seems almost too easy to be true....
Yeah I would like to know the same can you just get a trial VPN say unblockus change region to Mexico go to Netflix Page and sign up with Revolut card? Will it not change back to Irish plan after a month?

yeah, but that's the point - in spotify you can't access the other users profiles, but in netflix you can. keeping your nose out of the other profiles would be hard and even harder would be resisting the opportunity to mess with their recently viewed list!

and as regards spotify - don't be so cynical the BA members are way too nice to do such a thing....aren't they?

I for one would have no interest in what others are watching or messing with it. I would be happy to be getting my own cheaper

How much are you paying, as i've never tried out Netflix, but after seeing some of the ideas here, i'm in 2 minds in paying for E12 for it now!

UK Site costs - £7/€9 - UK IP needed?
US Site costs - ??

I use unblock-us on my TV, if I change the region to somewhere outside the UK or Ireland then Netflix will detect it, won't load the film and give an error

That's different though - that's using VPN to access content from outside the country where you're located, which Netflix have been clamping down on for years. What people are suggesting is using VPN to sign up (and subsequently be billed) from a country that is cheaper then the euro zone price.

Unless you fiddle with settings that you're not supposed to, you get the correct content for the country you're accessing it from. That's always been the case.

There's a group of us, 3 boardsies and a buddy from xbox, who do this- works fine, everyone set up as an individual user and i have never thought to look at what the lads are watching, mostly cos i couldn't care.

There is a greater risk of sharing Netflix with strangers compared to Spotify. Any one of the users could change the password and hijack the account. Maybe remote chance but still possible. I share with extended family.
