How Many People Can Watch Kocowa?

Last Updated Sep 22, 2022

Kocowa is a fairly new streaming service that has been making waves in the entertainment industry. It offers Korean and Japanese content, which can be streamed on phones, tablets, or computers. Since many people purchase subscriptions with the intention of sharing them amongst friends and family, it’s common to ask how many people can use the streaming service at a time.

Up to four people can watch Kocowa at a time, depending on the subscription purchased. Kocowa offers two options here: the basic plan, which allows one profile, and the premium plan, which allows four profiles. However, their service terms imply that you can only use one device at a time.

In this article, we will provide more insight regarding Kocowa’s subscription plans and their regulations on service use. As you read, you’ll also learn the answers to other common questions, such as which devices are compatible with Kocowa and how to access this streaming service on each.

Kocowa Terms of Service for Subscriptions

It’s a bit unclear how many people can use the same Kocowa subscription at the same time.

The different subscription plans we briefly discussed previously imply that anywhere from 1-4 people can watch the streaming service’s content at once.

However, the actual purpose of this feature might be to allow users to create their own tailored “watchlists” and know their in-progress shows and movies won’t be disturbed by another user.

In the streaming service’s Terms of Use, it states that:

“Except as expressly authorized pursuant to the Terms, you may not permit others to (i) use the Service on or gain access to the Content from more than one device at a time or install any software in a fashion that makes the Service and/or the Content available on, running on or accessible from more than one device at a time;.”

Here, it explicitly states twice that subscription holders are not permitted to give access to Kocowa’s content to more than “one device at a time,” which you would think is the answer to the question.

However, it also says “except as expressly authorized pursuant to the terms,” which makes it unclear if the terms of the premium subscription that allows four profiles also permit content access on four devices at once. To be safe, you’ll likely have to operate under the assumption that it is one device at a time.

Kocowa Subscriptions Plans: Basic vs. Premium

As we mentioned previously, there are two subscription options for the Kocowa streaming service, and, depending on which plan you choose, it might affect how many people can watch its content at once.

Both the premium and basic Kocowa subscription plan has their own benefits that might render one the better choice for you versus the other.

Below, we have outlined these benefits along with each subscription’s cost, so you can make the most informed decision possible.

Basic Subscription

Currently, Kocowa’s basic subscription plan is offered for $6.99/month or at a discounted annual rate of $69.99. Purchasing this option comes with the benefits listed below:

  • No advertisements
  • Single profile
  • Unlimited dramas and TV shows
  • Hassle-free automatic renewal

If you’re the only one who plans to watch content on Kocowa, or you intend to share this subscription with one other person, and you don’t care about having playback options, then the basic subscription plan is the superior choice.

Premium Subscription

Comparatively, the premium Kocowa subscription plan is offered for $7.99/month or at a discounted annual rate of $79.99. Purchasing this option comes with the benefits below:

  • No advertisements
  • Four profiles
  • Download and offline playback
  • Unlimited dramas and TV shows
  • Hassle-free automatic renewal

The obvious advantage of this subscription plan is that for a mere $1 more per month, you gain an additional three profiles, allowing up to four people to watch Kocowa content at the same time while only paying for one subscription. This makes it the ideal option for families, friend groups, and businesses.

What Devices Can You Watch Kocowa On?

Now that you know your subscription plan options and how many people can watch Kocowa content at once, you might be wondering what devices are compatible with the streaming service’s website and app.

Kocowa is widely compatible with a majority of modern entertainment devices, including:

  • PCs running Windows 7 or later
  • Macs running Mac OS 10.7 or later
  • Android devices
  • iOS devices
  • Streaming devices from Apple TV, Roku, and Chromecast

Oftentimes, the biggest obstacle here is ensuring your device is up to date enough to download, install, and run Kocowa. We’ve already listed the software requirements for PC and Mac but will add that in terms of hardware, these devices will require an Intel Core 2 Duo processor or equivalent.

When it comes to iOS devices, Kocowa is compatible with an iPhone 5 or later, an iPad 2 or later, and an iPad Touch 5th generation or later.

If you prefer to watch Kocowa content on your TV, but you can’t download its app directly, then you’ll want to invest in one of its compatible streaming devices, such as Apple TV, using the AirPlay feature or Roku TV/players/other devices. Chromecast is also an option as long as you use the Chromecast 1st or 2nd generation, the Chromecast Ultra, or later.

Final Thoughts

When it comes to watching K-drama television series and films, there are few streaming services better than Kocowa. While it is a bit unclear how many devices can access the streaming service’s contents through the same subscription at a time, the terms of service imply that the answer is only one. Despite this, you’ll still want to strongly consider your subscription plan options, as they can assist with keeping people’s interests and watched or in-progress content separate through multiple profiles.
