Can not download movies on Netflix? How to solve the device lock

Netflix offers different subscription plans, each of which offers a limited number of devices for downloading movies and series. The "Basic" plan lets you download videos on only one phone or PC, while the "HD Standard" lets you download on two devices. Already the most expensive plan, "Premium Ultra HD", provides the feature in four devices. This goes for apps on all computers and mobile phones, adding the different profiles saved in the account.

If this amount is exceeded, an error message appears on the screen and prevents saving the media. The good news is that the user can quickly resolve this by the account settings: just remove some device from the management list and then download it for a new device. Discover in this tutorial how to solve the device limit error on Netflix and do this unlock.
