Sony Pictures Networks India’s OTT platform Sony LIV is rolling out user profiles for the friends and family who share Sony LIV accounts. The feature currently rolled out on Android mobile app.
Each account will allow to setup upto five profiles including kids profiles and offers parental controls and profile locking for kids profiles.
