Netflix announced this morning that it is finally ready to roll out multiple profiles on user accounts so families can more efficiently share one account.

After 19 months of promising a feature that will allow for multiple profiles, Netflix is finally delivering on this promise starting today. The feature will roll out over the next few days to users on the Web and PS3 interfaces that will allow them to set up the profiles, and they will then be able to access those profiles on iPad, iPhone, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Apple TV, and newer Smart TV’s and Blu-Ray players. Support will also eventually roll out for the Nintendo Wii, Android devices and more.
