As you're currently a premium member, I expect the system won't even allow you to apply guest pass to your account.

If the person attempts to send it to you via PM, the system won't even allow it. I know that from experience, as someone on a free trial asked me for one, and I tried to send it before I noticed.

That also means that even if you already have it, the system wouldn't allow you to apply the code.

Okay So Im a premium member but I'm curious how do the Guest passes work. Are they like 48 hrs real time, or do they only start diminishing with usage?

Like if I gave a friend a guest pass would they need to use it immediately or could they watch a little now and then? If My questions doesn't make sense I'll try to clarify.

The 48 hours starts as soon as the guest pass is redeemed by the person they send it to.

They could wait to redeem it (up until it expires), but once they redeem it, the clock starts ticking. If they waited 47 hours after redeeming it to start viewing anything, they would only get a hour of actual use.

The lesson to be learned here: Don't redeem the guest pass until ready to begin viewing.

What is it that you figured out exactly??

I want to send the guest pass to a friend, but I don't understand if the 48 hours are 48 hours of streaming, For example: will he be able to watch 6 hours a day for 8 days??

48 hours elapsed time from the moment he activates it, regardless of how much has actually been streamed.

That is to say, two days later it is done. It is not measured by hours of actual use, just straight hours. They should probably just say two days instead of 48 hours.

What does it mean when I try to redeem a guest pass and the page says: "Sorry, an error occurred while processing your request."

It means things are still broken. Apparently this has been happening to everyone for over a week. CR is aware of it but we've been given no estimate as to when it will be fixed.

Sigh, as soon as I find our about guest passes is as soon as they start having problems.
