Very likely you will only have one account but can login with several devices at the same time. I don't think they will give you additional accounts (username/password).

I would imagine it will similar as Netflix or Amazon Prime. Every device is registered with the service, and can then be turned on or off from the main acct manager / device. I hope that they would add the option to turn off purchasing on some devices though.

That's not even remotely how Netflix works. Streams going out to IPs are what is monitored. That way you can open up any browser on a PC or tablet and get content. If they start noticing more than one stream going out to different IPs then they might shut down the account.

It's not uncommon for multiple streams going into one household over their public IP, and it's expected.

I'm not sure if this is something that can be answered yet or not, but I didn't see anything in the FAQ about it. I wondering If HLO will have a trial or Demo period before those on HLC decide to migrate and start paying toward the 2$/month+the Data pack for Starfinder.

I hope LWD will have this since you can demo everything in HLC before deciding to pay for the anything. My only issue is the monthly fee, since I can go week to month of not using HLC before I can get a game going with our group. Though it sounds like you can discontinue paying for any periods you don't think you'll be using it and pick it back up when you need too.

If only it worked that way. My Netflix was hacked and I only found out because weird stuff started showing up as having been watched recently by me.

Oh man, I hate when I am looking for "emotional independent dramas for hopeless romantics" and all I keep getting is "sentimental movies about horses for ages 11 to 12"! Isn't that just the worst?

My sister tried to get me into "Jane the Virgin" but I just wasn't feelin' it. I should have known what was coming when I introduced her to K-dramas, the far superior brand of cringe!
