Is using my friends Netflix considered stealing? I have been using it a while and she gave me her password to watch a show but I have been watching other things. Can I get her in trouble and am I stealing?

Firstly if your friend gave you the password you are not stealing. Also Netflix accounts are allowed to be hooked up to six different devices, and content can be legally streamed through two of those six devices at once. You can watch as much content as you want per month with the $7.99 subscription fee so you using it is not a breach of contract nor is it costing your friend any more per month than if just she was using it. You might want to ask for permission however if you feel bad about it, or look into getting your own subscription if it is really bothering you.
