To migrate, simply enter Netflix, click the menu Your account and then click Change plan. On the page, select the second option, which will entitle the video streams on up to four different devices at the same time. Apparently, this is the only way to sign the family plan at the time: as the American site, it does not appear on the homepage or in promotional materials.
The use of one account by several people can be a problem, after all, Netflix suggests content based on what you watch. So, if you share the account with your little child, do not be surprised when the service recommend you watch Chicken Pintadinha or Barney .This inconvenience should be solved with multiple profiles feature, which has no date to arrive.

The CEO of Netflix, Reed Hastings, does not believe that it causes decrease in revenue or something: in a meeting with investors, he revealed that he expects only 1% of American subscriber base migrate to the new plan.
