Netflix rolls out individual user profiles, offers personalized recommendations for the whole family

Ian Paul | Aug. 2, 2013
With multi-user profiles, viewing tastes for each member of your family no longer have to be jumbled together into one giant mess.

You can only add accounts via Netflix.com or on the PlayStation 3, but multi-user profiles are viewable on a wider array of set-top boxes and mobile devices than before. The list now includes Apple TV, iPad, iPhone, most Smart TVs, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. One notable name missing from multi-user support is Roku, the original Netflix set-top box.

We've sent a note to Netflix to see if Roku will support the new feature at launch. Even if it doesn't, Netflix did say that support for additional devices will be added in the coming months. So if your favorite Netflix device doesn't support multi-user profiles yet, look for it soon.
