Both Netflix and Amazon Prime work on multiple IP addresses for me.
Have you noticed any type of limitation with it for multiple people?
Chemguy's siblings used to use his parents passwords for all of it, they didn't pay for any streaming. I was never a big one for sharing, but I cancelled Crave a while ago, was going to start it back up for Handmaid's tale but my sister encouraged me to just use hers.
Streaming is starting to become like cable - paying for every 'channel' but now it's separate services. With that way that's going I'm in full support of a family group - each of us pays for one or 2.

With Crave now we do limit it as I know they only allowed so many devices on it, and every time my browser had an update that counted as a new device (although it's easy enough to kick off devices and then readd). I just figure since it's not my account, we'll keep it to one here, so if Chemguy wants to watch something on it, he does so from my computer (which we can connect to our tv screens).

With Prime, I've noticed that you can only listen to Amazon Music on one device at a time.

The only difference I've seen between Prime and Netflix in terms of video is that Netflix lets you set up separate lists for different people on a single account. So we pay for one account, but my wife, my daughter and I can set up our own "to watch" list. On Prime you can have a "to watch" list - but only one so all three of us are jumbled together.

For what it's worth, I'd say that overall Netflix has better movies, but Prime has some very good series.

I’m not a fan of prime. We’ve searched shows on it and they appear as if they are available. We try selecting them and it turns out they are part of another subscription? Don’t show me shows I can’t watch with the service I’m already paying for!
