    i have multiple Apple TVs in my house for kids and whatnot, in the past week I’ve noticed I get an alert that I can’t watch any of my iTunes content as it is being watched on another device.
    Did Apple decrease how many devices can have iTunes? If so, how many?
    Any assistance is appreciated.

    Hi Kal,
    I believe that it is still up to five Apple TVs that can work with your Apple I.D. at once along with five Apple devices.
    If you go over that, you can also set up Family Sharing to your account.

    Maximum of 10 devices associated with your account with no more than 5 of that 10 being computers. As Paul said you can add additional devices by using the family sharing option but it can get a little messy sometimes, especially around purchases, and you can share film rentals, as I found out while at the mother-in-law's the other night....

    Yeah I only have 7 devices but I can't play iTunes when a family member in the other room is watching a completely different movie but is on the same account. This has not happened before.
