The amount of devices is determined by your subscription plan: 1 device for Basic plan, 2 devices for Standard plan and Premium plan. Basic with ads plan don’t allow users to download content. So when you are downloading Netflix videos on multiple devices, you will get this error. To fix this, you need to remove downloads from another device or go to netflix.com/changeplan to upgrade your plan.
