    I notice when I exit out of an app and return later, thy app is still "open". Does this mean it is always tying up a user, for instance: Netflix only allows a certain number of users, am I always using one because Netflix never seems to close?

    I'm not sure that it would unless you were actively streaming... but either way, you can close them out by double clicking the square/TV button on the remote, then swiping up in the same method you would use to close apps on the iphone multitasking.

    The ATV4 has multitasking, and memory management. Anything still open in the background will close if the memory is needed for something else.

    That is what I kind of assumed, I wasn't sure if just "being in the app" counted as a user.

    Yeah I knew this. Just wasn't sure how it effected users streaming.

    As far as I know, you have to be streaming in order for it to count as they don't say that you pay for users, but for simultaneous streams. Just having the app open, especially with it in App Nap, shouldn't count.
