This rings so true. I pay for Netflix and Hulu Plus (and Amazon Prime, but that has other practical applications), but I share the Hulu Plus with a friend and use her HBO Go in return.

Is Greg…hot? 1?

@nzle naturally.

@nzle @Greg Barto@facebook the irony is that Greg’s password actually is GregIsReallyHot which, a. Is a lie and b. is demoralizing to type.

Hahaha, I love how everyone just shares their Netflix password.

i think i might cancel hulu plus. i just cannot deal with all the ads.

@cliuless I thought the whole point of hulu plus WAS no ads??

@polka dots vs stripes Lies! The “point” (if you can really call it that) is: being able to watch certain shows the day after they air instead of the week after they air, being able to watch hulu on your television, and possibly other devices. Ad-free would definitely make it way more appealing (especially to people who don’t even own a television or other devices).

I switched to Netflix Instant-Only and haven’t looked back (especially since my laptop’s optical drive crapped out on me).

My ex was using my netflix password for ages. I gueess I was fine with it as it seemed a silly thing to care about until he got a new girlfriend. I figured that she could support his Netflix habit and changed that my password.

@iffie My ex used my New York Times log in for a year and a half post breakup…way before the paywall. Why, I couldn’t possibly tell you.

@iffie I’ve been using my Ex’s Pandora account for the last 3 years. He doesn’t seem to mind…

Megano! (#124)

@iffie my ex changed his PSN password recently, which sucks because I (like an idiot) bought a bunch of DLC on his account that I no longer have access to and none of you probably even know what I’m talking about lol

@iffie I used my ex’s Cook’s Illustrated password for years. Then the bastard stopped subscribing.

@Megano! I know exactly what you’re talking about. My dragon age save got corrupted because he used the one-use code the game came with on his account for the day one dlc, and I was dumb enough to delete his account off of the ps3 when I moved out. Now I had to delete all my saves and uninstall/reinstall to play it. :(

KPeeps (#1,140)

@iffie I know exactly what you’re talking about! My PS3 just died this past week which caused a slight crisis in the household until we get it fixed because it’s how we normally watch Netflix and the majority of our DLC and hard copy games are for PS. We have a 360 too but XBox charges you for Live Gold, which is the only way you can use Netflix/Hulu/Xfinity on their device. WTF?

For future reference, those using prelogged in passwords can find out what those passwords are in Firefox by going to Options>Security>Saved Passwords, button for “show passwords.”

And I think I’d give out my Netflix password to anyone here for a Jane Austen-with-Mom emergency.

Argh, Netflix and exes! My ex started dating a good friend of mine pretty soon after we broke up, while I was away for a vacation. They hid it from me, and I only found out from a mutual friend while I was ON vacation, since she was going to be watching his apartment while they went to INDIA together and assumed I knew. The ‘good friend’ wrote me a lovely email about how ‘it wasn’t planned’, even though you kind of actually have to plan a trip to Asia.

Anywaysss, I knew he was back in the country because he started using my Netflix the day he got back, presumably while at her apartment. Class Act. The Netflix part STILL makes me angry; what are you, a lazy monster without $8 and the ability to type?

You can also rent movies as one-offs via regular Amazon. We did this to get caught up on Harry Potters before the last one came out. Worked great, less than $5, IIRC.

Little-known fact: there are actually only four Netflix passwords in the entire world. Everybody else shares.
