How Many Streams Can You Have At Once With WatchESPN, Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Instant, And More

netflix-amazon-huluEvery wonder how many streams you could have at once with your subscription? We did some digging to find out how many streams you can run at once for many of the popular services out there today.

Hulu – 1 Stream

Amazon Instant – 2 Streams

Netflix – 1, 2, or 4 streams depending on your plan.


Watch ESPN – 5 devices at once. Please note all we could find is how many devices you could attach at once. We are assuming that means 5 streams at once. (We found this from Time Warner but find it holds true with other services like Comcast.)


Sling TV – 1 Stream (Please note that one stream dose include WatchESPN. You can not use the WatchESPN app and Sling TV app at the same time with a Sling TV login.)

WatchDisney, WatchDisneyJunior, and other Disney Networks – They all seam to allow 5 devices but some times we get kicked at fewer. Disney also makes you resign in on their network apps every month. This information comes from our testing not any website.

We will work on adding to this list as we find the limits of other services.

    I was able to stream Hulu through both my tablet and Roku at the same time.

      These are the listed limits. I have heard from other people that Hulu dose not always enforce the limit. I think they do it during high usage times.

      I have Hulu Plus, and it lets me watch it on my Samsung Smart TV using the Hulu App, and simultaneously watch a different program on my laptop, which is connected to an older TV via HDMI cable. I’ve been doing this for weeks, and there is no downtime. So far.
