PS4 playstation plus help

Found 17th Feb
have ps4 with 2 users(profiles) both my sons with no age restrictions

usually buy a playstation plus for a year and put it in son1 profile always works
bought one this year and put it in son2 account and now son one cant buy or get the free games

is there a reason for this or is it only the account you put the playstation plus into

You need a paying sub to PS+ to download free games + play online. #1 son now doesn't have the privilege to download free game or play online, he can only play them (I have the same set up on my PS4).

#2 son has the sub for the year. Once that period is over then buy a new sub for #1 son.

have paid for a year but entered it on wrong user
Isn’t it down to if the account is a primary account, maybe number 2 son has only a sub account?

son2 only plays it lightly son1 uses it all the time
Make sure both accounts are set as the primary account. You'll need to keep buying the games on the account for Son2 but then both Sons will be able to play the games.

In that case you should've bought the sub under #1 son for him to be able to play online. He can still play online + download the free games using #2 son account.

You'll have to give Sony a call and see if they can transfer the membership.
You just need to change around which is the master ps4.
