This came to light because of the leakage of emails from Sony after their computers were hacked recently. The emails claim that Netflix’s leniency towards their overseas subscribers was “damaging its licensing revenue overseas”.
ye have been warned..thou shalt not use vpn!
What about DNS level re-routing =D You know, I mean if that's your thing.
Well, the only thing Netflix needs to do is provide their service overseas. Problem solved, for me personally is unfair if Ausies or pakistanians are forbidden to watch tv programming and movies. .....
Never thought of it that way, but this is the true definition of 'piracy' where you hijack other people's property. In Australia some cable companies have exclusive rights to a few US shows because Netflix doesn't exist there. They pay millions to get these rights but people are now circumventing this exclusivity and going straight to Netflix in the US. Therefore Netflix is hijacking the revenue stream by condoning the regional restrictions.
Its weird though as I know a load of people who use things like Hola as a way to access US Netflix when they have a UK based Netflix account. There's just more (and different) choice in the US version. Not only that but we're paying more in the UK anyway. It's like.. Sony (et al) are getting the money, just at a different time from a different market. It wouldn't work if you didn't pay for a netflix account, so it's.. Pretty weird really.
Oops I should stop using hola then Lool yeah no that's not gonna happen! I pay £5.99 for UK version when the shows available are not even 50% of what USA has, give us more shows or make Netflix available worldwide and you won't have a problem.
why i am not allowed yo use VPN to access these contents especially in not available in my country?
Kiwis have already been watching Netflix for some time but it is soon coming next year to Australia and nz and i hope theres enough content and the price is right
