Discover the power of Simultaneous Viewing Limits, a feature designed to protect your premium content from account sharing, ensuring a maximized revenue stream.

Members might choose to share their accounts with others. And we get it, people love a bit of free access. But account sharing means you lose out on potential revenue for your premium content.

This is where our “Simultaneous Viewing Limits” feature comes in. The feature tracks simultaneous viewing sessions across web, mobile and TV apps to help avoid account sharing.  

Similar to streaming services like Netflix, Disney+ and Spotify, multiple users can login, but only 1 person can watch the content at once. If multiple users try to watch content they’ll see this message…

They can choose to ‘stop playing on other devices’ or cancel their own session. This is particularly useful for live streaming events.
