My father lives at a different address from myself and has Netflix connected to 5 seperate devices....

Here's my question, I understand that if he pays a further small fee he can add a new device...

Therefore if he adds a new device , can it be for me as in my TV in a different address. I would use his email address and his password.. Would this work like lightbox?

Yep, I've got the 4 devices at any one time Netflix plan and my mum logs in from her house no problems.

The subscription isnt tied to an address. Just to an account and number of devices (as you seem aware).  It will work.

Example: I took my chromecast on holiday to another address and used that to cast Netflix from my cell phone. Worked as expected.

I believe netflix limits you to concurrent streaming depending on which plan you have(2 for the standard and 4 for the expensive plan), I have logged on to more than five devices and haven't been told to remove any like you get on lightbox. and yes you can be at a different address, my sister was watching in Auckland and I was in Napier
