Netflix is trying to block proxies and vpns that use their service.
Successfully though? I still here of lots of people who use vpns to access their service.
Solution: Lock it to the country in the customer's billing address.
There are ways to get around that, but they're MUCH more hassle than turning on a VPN, so 99% of people currently using VPNs won't bother, and the rights holders will be satisfied.
Cancelling sub and going back to piracy if it stops working with my VPN
It's a shame because Netflix is being forced into this by the content holders, but people give all the heat to Netflix
Yeah, it's the same when they pull content from their service. Its literally the fucking media companies pulling it most of the time or them asking too much.
Same guy here, I know fuck all about laws or netflix.
Is there a chance that Netflix can ban my account? I'm worried because I share it with my friends and I'm not the owner of it.
Also, how is hola a botnet?
People make it easy here though, by using VPNs almost exclusively for shitposting or getting banned.
So if you live in a shit country like Australia, you can't use a DNS IP to America to get decent TV shows?
This makes no sense because you are still paying for their service and its hardly your fault that Netflix offers more TV shows and Movies in America.
He's not the one requesting or posting CP, he was just given an IP that was previously banned for CP that pretty ends him from posting
Happen 's to me all the time, I actually managed to convince a mod through unban that IP, but the next day my provider gave me another IP that was also banned for CP. That's when I started using VPN+pass
It's all about licences. They don't have the licences for the content you want to watch in Australia. The actual licence holders in USA and Australia don't want you to access America Netflix. So they pressure Netflix to uphold an efficient geoblocking. It's the old media powers trying to keep the system the way its always been. Netflix has been on the record about wanting the same content available across the globe, but rights holders and licence deals are in the way.
>Lock it to the country in the customer's billing address.
You could easily bypass it by buying US Netflix cards and using a proxy to sign up tho.
Only downside is that in most third world shitholes with poor catalogs like Mexico the cost is actually cheaper, so you'll be paying a bit more.
> Implying they will ever offer US quality service elsewhere
They're losing titles because every production company thinks goyim will absolutely pay them directly to watch their shitty shows or movies.
Happened with all of Discovery Channel shows.
There is several ways and reasons to use a vpn.
One is for anonymity, here you would log into a vpn a lot of people uses and then all traffic will appear to be from the same source.
Another is for protection where you log into your own server and use that to route the traffic.
I don't see how they will detect this as only a single person will log in from that ip.
If you disable it within extensions and just enable it when you want US Netflix say, will that minimise the botnet ? Or if even its disabled in chrome. Is it still botnetting?
Anon you answered your own question. You think they would hire sane people after their work is done? No. They hire people on their level so everything is steady and the jew can grow steadily until it can finally take full control.
In theory Netflix could stop piracy by providing all digital content to everyone around the world.
The price is pretty much the same for piracy since you have to pay a VPN ~7$/month to pirate safely.
However because of region blocks, VPN blocks, content holders being niggers and not letting netflix stream their stuff - netflix turned out to be a half baked solution for piracy.
I had netflix up until November 2015 and got tired of the lack of content and dropped my subscription. I guess piracy won't go away anytime soon. Feels wrong though.
>since you have to pay a VPN ~7$/month to pirate safely
Useless since we're talking about region blocks aka people wanting to watch the american catalog while not living in america
I wish they would their shit together. I'm tired of only having 1-2 seeders for the obscure content I look for. Sometimes I have to go as far as going on ebay to look for the dvd/cd.
I'm not sure what's worse, being a netflix cuck or being a private tracker cuck. You also can't use a private tracker if you are a comcast cuck like me who has a 250gb data cap.
God fucking dam it. Wish google fiber or some other ISP would remove the comcast infestation here.
Are you connected to the internet using an ISP, and in a territory ran by a government?
Yes? If so, you're already in the botnet, so theirs no need to worry about programs adding you to the buttnuts.
Let them do it, who gives a fuck, only retarded people pay the full price for less content, the others will just wisen up and use torrents.
>Who the fuck uses Netflix?
I have a subscription because my gf's English still is too poor for watching the stuff I get off Usenet, everything being subtitled is worth the tiny sum. Plus I get to Netflix and chill y'know
Why pay more for less?
>get most content in existence
>get all of this bullshit.
