>Netflix has started to restrict its users from streaming more than one movie at a time as part of its price hike. The change could have a major effect on how families use Netflix. No longer can one person watch a movie from the iPad while the rest of the family watches another film on the Xbox, for example.
To be clear it was my understanding that this was never allowed before — it’s just that Netflix is now enforcing that rule. Still sucks though.
**UPDATE** (on Sep 7, 2011): [Netflix is denying the charges](http://gigaom.com/video/netflix-simultaneous-streams/).
