Sharing Disney Plus?

My kind cousin has offered to share her Disney Plus account. Can you use the account in a different household? I don't want her to get into trouble.

    But is that allowing others in your same household? It doesn't specify if the others users are living elsewhere.

    It says you shouldn't share your log-in details with third parties, so I would say not allowed. 
    However, you can stream on 4 screens at once so who is really going to know.

    Those 4 screens are required to be devices registered to the account 
    So "sharing" elsewhere simply will not work.

    The terms and conditions make provision for other people to access your account with your consent, it doesn't say that the other people have to be in the same household.

    Yes, but as long as you register them then it will work. 
    Same as Netflix account, you are not supposed to share with others, but I have heard that it happens for those not in the same household.

    Certainly Netflix "allowed" shared subscriptions in their early days to encourage the take-up. Disney may be adopting the same unofficial policy. However, it would be a simple matter to insist  that the four registered devices all use the same IP address...

    I don't really understand what you mean by the same IP address for all the devices and how this could be regulated. When I check my Netflix usage it shows a range of different IP addresses even though I always access from the same location. Then let's say I travelled a lot for work, I would want to be able to watch Netflix from multiple different locations. Would Netflix (or Disney in this case) only allow me one IP address making access to their streaming service virtually impossible?

    Dunno. 
    I only said they could do that if they  decided to strictly limit shared subscriptions. 

    A household is a household and Disney+ (and Netflix)  is not SkyGo :)
