Netflix intends to start blocking VPNs and proxies.
That means no more international television and movies. You, a Netflix user, will be limited to whatever Netflix offers inside your country's borders. (Video via Netflix)
Assuming Netflix's blocking works. Part of the appeal of a VPN or proxy — on top of the ability to get around geographic restrictions — is it can be difficult to trace or even distinguish from regular traffic.
The company said in a press release: "For now, given the historic practice of licensing content by geographic territories, the TV shows and movies we offer differ, to varying degrees, by territory."
Still, if you've been using a Netflix VPN, now might be a good time to catch up on whatever show you're watching. Just in case. (Video via Netflix)
