Yeah pretty much, I have a family deal for spotify. me and my husband have been in the family deal for 3 years now with some lads we met on here. One guy set up a paypal and has that as the payment method, and the money comes out every month for the sub. But we just send him the money for the year up front and once a year we message to see if we are doing another year.

They are illegal or as illegal as VPNs. They are totally against the T&Cs. Netflix is trying to stop it and I assume disney will try too.

I have family Spotify. T&Cs say the you must all live in the same house. If I remember correctly they ask you to login to prove you are at that address. I assumed that us logging in on the same WiFi was the proof. Now I'm wondering do they just take your word for it? Or did a boards member set it all up in his/her own home before sending you the details?

The issue is if they all have the same login and can see each others profiles

It's 60 quid for a year. Jesus lads, its really not worth the hassle of not having the account yourself and having control of it.

What will you do with that extra 86.5c a week?

There's no porn on Netflix or disney so can't see this being a problem

Disney, like Netflix, has individual profiles. You can pick disney /star wars characters for your avitar

No we just all had to set our address to the same address, we have had the deal for 3 years though so maybe this came in after we set it up?

Ah OK. I was mistaken that it was my wifi that proved our address.
Thanks for that

All for one low price
Just €59.99 for a year instead of €69.99 if you sign up before 24 March. No ads, no extra costs. T&Cs apply. *Offer valid until 23 March, 2020
****^^^


Also I really don’t see any benefit in pre ordering a digital product

It's hard to say until it goes live. Disney have made an effort to pull back a lot of their content from rival platforms, but there may be some gaping holes until contracts with certain companies expire. I could be wrong, but I think the reason for the UK delay is due to their current contract with Sky for their movies. Sky currently have a "Disney" and "Star Wars" channel on their movies subscription, and regularly have "superhero" channels that often show lots of Marvel titles. These might all disappear once Disney+ launches.

Yes, I'd assume Ireland/UK content will be missing some shows for a year or two until their current contracts with other channels expire

You have people buying spaces on Spotify/Netflix family plans in BA, never underestimate the power of saving a tenner.

Spotify is 120 euro a year. The family saving is 90 euro a year.
