“Netflix is ​​trying to avoid circumventing regional restrictions’




It seems that Netflix does attempt to users trying to access the content offerings in other countries to put a foot across. Thus, already several VPN services are blocked.

Netflix According to TorrentFreak Netflix is already several weeks working to block VPN services by filtering their IP addresses. In this way the work VPN services, users can not and do not exist as though they come from where they actually live in another country. It would also force the Android application for Netflix users to use Google’s DNS servers.

Although Netflix itself has said nothing about the blockade is likely that the content provider wants to prevent users watch content where they have no right to. The company would have received complaints from the content industry about unauthorized access. Netflix needs for each country separately given permission to stream content to its users.

For now it seems to be a test: Netflix would like to try out different options for blockages and focuses not on all providers of VPN services. It is possible that the blocks to be extended in the near future.
