You can add extra member slots for a cool $7.99 each per month. Because, you know, why not make your friends and family pay for their own account when you can foot the bill?

But hold your horses! There’s a little asterisk attached to this offer. That Standard with ads plan might not be available through all third-party billing partners and packages.

So, you’ll have to do some legwork and check with your provider to confirm availability. Because who doesn’t love a good wild goose chase?

And about those extra members, they get their own account and password. But don’t worry; you’re still the one picking up the tab.

The number of extra member slots you can add? Well, that depends on your plan. Because, of course, it does.

The Basic package gets you unlimited access to TV shows and movies on one device as well as downloads on one phone or tablet.

The ad-supported tier will have the same features as the Standard package, except there will be a few minutes of ads every hour.
