I am thinking of signing up to Netflix for the first time. I have a smart TV with a Netflix button so obviously I'll access it that way. However, if I opt for the basic package (can watch on one screen at a time), can I log in on another device NOT at the same time? For context, what if I want to log in to the app via my cellphone and cast it to a friend's TV? Can I log into my account on my boyfriend's iPad? I'm NOT talking about two people/devices watching simultaneously - I mean can I log into my account on different devices? Will it think I'm still logged into my account on my smart TV?

Yes, most definitely.

You can login from as many devices as you like, even simultaneously, but actually watching a stream is limited by the number of sessions permitted by your account.

No signature to see here, move along...

Ah that's good then. But would I have to manually log out from the smart TV app if I wanted to log in somewhere else?

Nope. As above, only actual playback is restricted.

Anything I say is the ramblings of an ill informed, opinionated so-and-so, and not representative of any of my past, present or future employers, and is also probably best disregarded.

This has made my day. Thank you people! I googled so many things but couldn't get an actual answer to my query.

First month is free, so join up and see if it works for you. If it doesn't just cancel within the 30 days.
