Netflix to prevent proxies and unblockers

Netflix recently became available in 130 more countries, but unfortunately not every area is able to access all of its content. While Netflix works on licensing agreements, it will begin preventing customers from using proxies and unblockers to access more content. This move may not be a popular one from the company, as people obviously will want access to as much content as possible, but it is something Netflix says is necessary for its business.

Some members use proxies or "unblockers" to access titles available outside their territory. 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.

While it's unfortunate that not all of Netflix's content can be accessed everywhere, it's great to see the company take the matter seriously as it explores options to bring more content to all locations. Netflix says it hopes to be able to offer all of its content to all of its customers, regardless of location.
