ka aukati i te taviniraa Streaming aua ngāwari ai te whakamahi, me te ratonga VPN pērā i Hola i matakitaki ihirangi hoki ētahi atu rohe raihana
Kua faaite Netflix mahere ki te anganga iho i runga i kaiohauru e whakamahi taputapu pērā i ngāwari ai VPNs ranei ki te whanga ki ataata i ētahi atu whenua.
Raveraa i te reira homai kaiwhakamahi uru ki te kōwhiringa nui nui o taitara, engari wawahi ngā a Netflix o mahi - me whawhati te whakaaetanga e Netflix ki te kaiwhakarato ihirangi.
I roto i te tauākī, ka mea a Netflix mono peresideni Rawiri Fullagar: "Whakamahi te tahi mau melo ngāwari ai 'unblockers' ranei ki taitara uru wātea waho to ratou rohe. Ki te whakatutuki i tēnei, mahi tatou i nga mehua taua rite ranei te mahi te tahi atu umanga. tonu ana tēnei hangarau ki te whanake me te e tipu tatou ki reira.
"Ko te tikanga i roto i ngā wiki e haere mai, te hunga whakamahi i ngāwari ai me unblockers anake ka taea ki te uru i te mahi i roto i te whenua i tēnei wā kei hea ratou e. He māia kore e tenei huringa pānga mau melo e kore mā te whakamahi i ngāwari ai matou. "
Ngāwari ai me VPNs he taputapu e ara hononga ipurangi o te kaiwhakamahi i roto i te rōpū tuatoru i mua te mutunga tūhono ki te ipurangi. Kei te whakamahia nuitia ratou ki huna kanohi i te wāhitau IP, me te wāhi ko te kupu tinana, o te rorohiko o te kaiwhakamahi tukutuku.
He hira nga ratonga i roto i Netflix kaiwhakamahi, ihoa te hunga waho o te US, no te mea e tukua ana ratou uru ki te ataata e kua raihanatia Netflix mo ētahi atu whenua, engari e kore e ratou ake. I te tahi taime, the motivation is to access media that Netflix hasn’t licensed for multiple countries due to a lack of demand (hei tauira, 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, pērā i (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, Hiria, North Korea and Crimea.
Fullagar wrote that “We are making progress in licensing content across the world and, as of last week, now offer the Netflix service in 190 whenua, but we have a ways to go before we can offer people the same films and TV series everywhere.
“Over time, we anticipate being able to do so. hoki inaianei, given the historic practice of licensing content by geographic territories, the TV shows and movies we offer differ, to varying degrees, by territory. I roto i te wā, we will continue to respect and enforce content licensing by geographic location.”
Last January, Netflix was forced to deny rumours that it had launched a crackdown on users of VPN services after reports of blocked access. I te wa, the company said it was using “industry standard methods to prevent illegal VPN use”, 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.
