Millions of Netflix users given free upgrade today – check your account now

NETFLIX is upping the number of download devices an account can have at no additional cost.

But the free boost is only available to those with a premium subscription.

Before today, you could have a maximum of four devices allowed to download shows and movies offline on your iPhone, iPad or Android device.

Now you get an extra two, bringing the total to six.

Netflix said it realised that people want the option to download stuff on more of their gadgets, particularly as they travel and switch between devices.

However, that’s not the only new perk the streaming giant has revealed.

In a brand new move, Netflix has announced that is introducing the “highest quality sound experience” making it more cinema-like.

Netflix Spatial Audio makes things sound much more immersive.

And you don’t need expensive new equipment for it to work.

The firm has upgrade the audio on more than 700 of its most watched titles already.

This includes Stranger Things, The Watcher, Wednesday, and Knives Out: Glass Onion.

Fresh additions will receive the same treatment going forward, like You, Your Place or Mine, Luther: The Fallen Sun, and Tour de France. 

You can tell if something you’re watching supports spatial audio by looking for a badge in the description.

It’s also possible to search “spatial audio” on Netflix to see everything that supports it.

The two upgrades might soften upcoming changes, notably a password sharing ban with anyone outside your household.

Netflix is expected to crackdown on it as soon as March.

And we now know exactly how the company will catch you if you continue to share your account.
