Netflix clamp down on your proxy
Remember us telling you about Netflix clamping down on people using proxy servers and VPNs?
Well, they've updated their terms and conditions and now they're threatening to "terminate or restrict your use of our service, without compensation or notice" if you start doing things in a way they don't like. As a result, there's going to be a number of disgruntled customers who will ditch subscription services in favour of firing up a torrent.
If you want access to content that is (pointlessly) restricted to other territories, then you're going to have to go through the back door.
The clauses in the T&Cs that are relevant to all this are:
Article 6C: "You may view a movie or TV show through the Netflix service primarily within the country in which you have established your account and only in geographic locations where we offer our service and have licensed such movie or TV show. The content that may be available to watch will vary by geographic location. Netflix will use technologies to verify your geographic location."
"By way of background, what we do is nothing different than what traditional TV networks do to prevent, for example, someone from outside the US from watching the Olympics on NBC.com... we are working to become a global Internet TV network and, as part of that, will have more global rights to series, features, docs, comedy specials, etc., this should make this whole issue moot overtime."
