Netflix has announced that they are planning to stop people from using 'unblockers' or proxies which are used by users to access content not available in the country they reside in. Currently Netflix offers different content in different countries, however, Netflix is hoping to fix that as well so that people don't need to use proxies of VPNs as everything is available globally. The Independent has more details.
Netflix is going to stop the use of “unblockers” on its service, stopping the hugely popular practise that allows access to videos outside users’ country.
The company has long banned accessing content from elsewhere in its terms of service. But it has had a relatively relaxed approach to actually enforcing that ban, until now.
In the coming weeks, “those using proxies and unblockers will only be able to access the service in the country where they currently are,” the company wrote in a blog post. “We are confident this change won’t impact members not using proxies.”
