Netflix says it will step up enforcement against subscribers who use VPNs, proxies, and unblocking services to mask their locations. This will help Netflix prevent customers from watching video that isn't licensed for viewing in their country, but it may also affect people who use location-spoofing services for security or privacy reasons.
«Some members use proxies or 'unblockers' to access titles available outside their territory,» Content Delivery Architecture VP David Fullagar wrote in a post today. «To address this, we employ the same or similar measures other firms do. This technology continues to evolve and we are evolving with it. That means in coming weeks, those using proxies and unblockers will only be able to access the service in the country where they currently are. We are confident this change won’t impact members not using proxies.»
И самая нямка!!!
Sony and other content owners have been angry at Netflix for not cracking down hard enough on customers who evade geographic licensing restrictions. The crackdown could also affect customers who try to avoid location restrictions when they travel abroad.
