Netflix recently disclosed that there are more than 400 Netflix-ready devices, and Dan Rayburn from the Business of Online Video thinks the average family has about 10 Netflix-enabled devices.
So it's great to see that Netflix has removed the limit of five streaming devices and now allows customers to watch instantly on up to 50 unique devices per account. While I'm not the average user, and currently have about 30 unique devices I stream Netflix from, it's not crazy to think that many families that use Netflix already have ten devices in their home today that stream Netflix content. Between a family of four you could easily have six mobile devices (phone/tablet/iPod), three computers and two to three other devices like game consoles/Roku/Apple TV and broadband enabled TVs/Blu-ray players/STB. I'm willing to bet that a large percentage of Netflix users, who use the account within a family of four, already have ten Netflix enabled devices in their home today.
I know many of you are not "average" Netflix subscribers, and I'm curious about how many streaming devices you own:
I did a quick count and I have about 20 Netflix-ready devices, including game consoles, blu-ray players, phones, tablets, TiVo, Sony Dash, Samsung TV, etc.
