Watching friend's Netflix on my PS3?

7 replies 957 views Edited Mar 27, 2013

My girlfriend has a Netflix account but I don't. Can we watch movies from her account on my PS3, and how is that done?

I have a Netflix account here but my wife doesn't, I suppose the easiest way to put it is we have a Netflix account but it's in my name, but she can still watch movies & TV shows etc on her iPad just by adding the app & logging in using my password etc, so in that sense can't you just download the application on your PS3 & sign in with her details?

 

Unless you've tried it & that didn't work I would try it, gotta be worth it huh?

I would assume this would be the answer. Simply enter the account's information into the Netflix app on your PS3 and you shouldn't have a problem with watching your movies or TV shows. Smiley Happy

When you sign up for Netflix you are able to stream movies on 5 different devices under 1 account. So as long as there is room you can just type in the account info and watch. I just use my sister's info to watch Netflix here and it works fine.

Yeah the others are exactly correct. Simply login to Netflix using your GFs email and password on your PS3 after downloading the app from the PSN and you're good to go!

Thanks for the prompt response, guys! Smiley Happy

 

So what if I have multiple user accounts on my PS3? Can only one Netflix account be accessed per user?
