Netflix je najavio planove za slamanje pretplatnika koji koriste alate kao što su proxy ili VPN gledati video iz drugih zemalja.

Na taj način omogućava korisnicima pristup mnogo veći izbor naslova, ali razbija smislu Netflix je usluga - kao i kršenje sporazuma Netflix ima sa provajderima sadržaja.

U izjavi, Netflix potpredsjednik David FULLAGAR rekao: "Neki članovi koriste proxy ili" unblockers 'za pristup naslove dostupne izvan svoje teritorije. Za rješavanje ovog, zapošljavamo iste ili slične mjere drugih firmi rade. 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.”

Proxies and VPNs are tools which route a user’s internet connection through a third party before eventually connecting to the internet. They are commonly used to mask the IP address, and thus physical location, of a web user’s computer.

The services are popular among Netflix users, particularly those outside of the US, because they allow access to video that Netflix has licensed for other countries but not their own. ponekad, the motivation is to access media that Netflix hasn’t licensed for multiple countries due to a lack of demand (na primjer, a Korean émigré may want to watch shows from their home country, which haven’t been licensed for British audiences due to a lack of demand); but more commonly, the drive is simply that the US version of Netflix, thanks to its larger market, has a significantly better selection of English-language media than other regions.

The use of proxies was also particularly popular in countries where the service hadn’t officially launched, kao što su (until recently) Australia and New Zealand. But part of the motivation for Netflix finally cracking down on the use of proxies seems to be its announcement this month that it would be launching worldwide, to every nation other than China, Sirija, Sjeverna Koreja i Krim.

FULLAGAR napisao da "Mi činimo napredak u licenciranju sadržaja širom svijeta i, kao prošle nedelje, sada nude Netflix usluga u 190 zemlje, ali mi imamo načina da ode prije nego što možemo ponuditi ljudima iste filmove i TV serije svuda.

"Prekovremeno, predviđamo biti u stanju da to učini. Za sada, s obzirom na istorijske prakse sadržaja licenciranje po geografskim područjima, TV emisije i filmove nudimo razlikuju, u različitom stepenu, od teritorija. U međuvremenu, mi ćemo i dalje poštovati i provoditi sadržaj licenciranje po geografskoj lokaciji. "

Prošlog januara, Netflix je prisiljeni da negira glasine da je pokrenula kampanju protiv korisnici VPN usluga nakon izvještaja o blokirao pristup. U vrijeme, Kompanija je saopštila da je koristio "metoda industrijski standard za sprečavanje nezakonitog korištenja VPN", and the vast majority of VPN users continued to be able to watch region-locked content without issues.

But increasing pressure from content providers, who only grant Netflix the rights to stream certain content in certain locales, could be the reason for the change in policy. While Netflix has historically benefited from income from users who paid to access locked content, it now has to play nice worldwide in order to build up large libraries in its hundred-plus new nations.
