HBO Max, Filmin and SkyShowtime also restrict access to people who don’t live with you, didn’t you know that?
Once the initial turmoil aroused by the ban on netflix to share an account away from home, it’s time to review the competition. It is said that the platform streaming the most used in Spain is the only one to add this condition; However, read terms and conditions of other appswe find sections that refer to the possibility of limiting access to users who do not connect to the main IP address. What applications are these and why aren’t they using this power yet?
Streaming platforms that limit access to other users
In the HBO Max Terms of Service, there is a very important section, ‘authorized users‘, which could be used by the platform streaming to limit the use of the account. However, as in the rest of the cases that I am going to explain to you, Officials are unwilling to act as police (unlike Netflix).
- “Once you have registered an HBO Max account, you will have the ability to add up to five (5) authorized user profiles to the account (the “authorized users”). We may limit the maximum number of Authorized Users that you may add or who may use the Platform concurrently. Only your direct relatives or people you live with can be Authorized Users“.
That’s to say, HBO Max already limits the account to families or people who live under your roofbut it has no system in place to verify that its streaming platform is being used correctly.
- “Some examples of things not to do are as follows (…): 6. Sharing your login information with others outside your householdaccess or attempt to access the accounts of other SkyShowtime users (other than members of your household) or tamper with the security measures of the Services“.
Quite restrictive terms and conditions, which are not too different from the ones that Netflix has just applied, You do not think? The difference, again, is that it is not controlled.
from the movie
from the moviethe platform of streaming with a Spanish stamp and cradle of the best cinema, too limits account use and the ability to share personal data beyond the people you live with:
- “The Customer may not share his access and use data for the Services with people with whom he does not live in a stable manner, whether family, friends or third parties.“, is exposed in the Legal Mentions of Filmin.
for the third time, Filmin does not monitor compliance with this measure. But it is not excluded, as in the two previous cases, that it will start to do so in the future.
