Next, we will introduce troubles and solutions when you cannot log in to U-NEXT.
If you cannot log in, first check if your login ID and password are correct.
Be careful not to mistake upper and lower case letters in your login ID.
Also, what is often overlooked is that if there is a space at the end of the text string, authentication will not be possible.
If the above is not the problem, you can reset your password.
- Please click [Forgot Login ID/Password?
- Enter your confirmation e-mail address in the special form displayed. Also, select [Send to this address
- Confirm the procedure with the e-mail received at the confirmation e-mail address. After confirming your login ID, reset your password.
It is recommended that you confirm in advance that the password you entered is correct, of course, because it is often the case that you forgot to update it automatically on the website when you set it up, and your previous password is automatically used when you log in.
Here are some solutions for those who have forgotten the e-mail address they used when they registered for U-NEXT, entered a wrong e-mail address, or logged in with an e-mail address that is no longer in use.
Re-register your e-mail address
- Select [Accounts/Contracts] from the menu.
- ［Select [Register/Change E-mail Address].
- ［Select [Verify Identity with Phone Number
- The last four-digit cell phone number you registered will be displayed→ Select
- ［Select [Send Identification Code] → The authentication code entry screen will appear.
An SMS will be sent to the registered cell phone number, and the verification code will be entered into the screen shown in 6.
- ［After selecting [Verify Identity Confirmation Code], enter the e-mail address you wish to register.
- ［Select [Send verification code], and the verification code entry screen will appear.
This completes the registration of your new e-mail address.
If you cannot reset your login ID/password because your registered address is no longer available, please check Countermeasure 3.
Next, we will explain the reason for using U-NEXT (U-NEXT).
U-NEXT is one of the largest streaming services in Japan in terms of the number of all-you-can-watch movies. With more than 220,000 titles, it can easily satisfy the different needs of different audiences. Shows, movies, animations, and even adult movies are available on U-NEXT.
For new registrants, U-NEXT offers a 31-day free trial period, during which you can watch and read almost all of the movies you want (rental movies are charged). Furthermore, you can cancel at any time during the free trial period, and there is no cancellation fee. You can use it without any worries.
After joining U-NEXT, you can read as many magazines, manga, novels, and other e-books as you want, as well as unlimited viewing.
H-NEXT is the adult site of U-NEXT, and after joining U-NEXT, you can watch as many adult titles as you want on H-NEXT.
Not only smartphones and tablets, but also smart TVs (AppleTV, Fire Stick, etc.), game consoles (Switch, PS4, PS5), PCs, Blu-ray players, and many other devices are currently supported by U-NEXT.
If you choose the 2,189 yen (including tax) monthly plan with U-NEXT, you can watch on up to 4 devices per account. Furthermore, the same work can be viewed simultaneously. (In contrast, the streaming service hulu has no limit on the number of registered devices per account, but does not allow simultaneous viewing.)
