netflix cracking down on foreign users accessing american netflix

Are you a Netflix user? In a country besides the United States?

Well, you better listen up then because the movie streaming service is cracking down on users around the world!

But… why? You'd think Netflix would want to keep users happy, right?

It turns out that consumers in other countries were using roundabout ways to bypass region locks and access the American Netflix catalog because it has different movies and television shows than their own country!

Sounds like they just want to access all the great television like Gilmore Girls and Friends!

But according to some tech geniuses, they're totally NOT allowing it anymore!


"Many users rely on VPNs — virtual private networks — or custom DNS settings to stealthily access Netflix as though they were in other regions. But Netflix may have started closing some of those loopholes. Torrent Freak reports that, in the past few weeks, popular VPN services like TorGuard have started seeing a spike in errors when users try to access Netflix."

Well, at least they're not cracking down on sharing accounts!

Because, ya know, that's what, like, everyone and their mothers does with their Netflix accounts!

So that's some good news at the very least!

    Netflix is more expensive in Norway, with so many bad tv shows and movies, that I rather watch commertials on TV.

    Re: andrea – Gee, I am really sorry to hear that. Always liked the people from Norway when I worked for a multinational. Hope things get better for you in the future and Happy New Year.

    What a bad move on their part. They'll definitely lose customers to Shomi, their competitor who JUST came out.
