Multiple PS4s

I have 2 PS4s, my kids have their accounts on both but can only play my digital games on 1 of this because the licenses only work on the primary console or am I doing something wrong?

    You're doing nothing wrong. You are correct. Your account can only share it's content to it's primary console, so only one of the consoles can use the content with other accounts.

    You can play it on the 2nd one but you need to be signed into your account. You can temporarily play it on 2 consoles though without been signed in to any, on one console set it as primary then log out....on the 2nd console log into your account and set ot as primary, it will say something like its activated on another PS4 do you want to activate this one, select yes, not sure how long it will be before the games become locked but its normally about 1-2 days.

    Did you download on other PS4? That might be the reason
