This is important to some users. The service is limited to two simultaneous streams per account, which could be a deal-breaker for large families. Another issue is that when DirecTV launches, it sometimes informs you that you can't log in because of other simultaneous streams, even when there are no other streams.

As long as you don't share your account with millions of TV viewers, HBO probably won't frown if you share it with, say, the kids away at college or your cash-strapped favorite uncle. Wow, now you're really trying to get me in trouble. Just like years ago when mobile data providers started to clamp down on unlimited data caps, many broadband carriers recently have started doing the same.
