Hey!

I wanted to let my roommates share my TV shows, etc., and vice-versa. So, when my roommate tried to check out one of my shows, it asked for an Apple ID. Here are my questions:

 

1. Is this really necessary? I don't remember having to do this before. We're all on the same network.

2. Whose Apple ID does it want - mine or his?

3. If it's my Apple ID that's needed, will they now have access to my Apple accounts through iTunes? I don't much like the idea of plugging in my password on someone else's machine.

4. And if we all want to share our stuff with each other, will we all have to go around authorizing each other's computers?

 

Thanks!
