The SVOD juggernaut seems to be blocking VPNs and other tools from unauthorised users.
Netflix in the United States is not the same as Netflix in the rest of the world. Thanks to the intricacies of international law, the streaming service offers very different content, and sometimes none at all, based on where a subscriber lives.
Some savvy users have been using tools to get around that problem, but it appears the company may finally be putting its foot down.
Many users rely on VPNs — virtual private networks — or custom DNS settings to stealthily access Netflix as though they were in other regions. But Netflix may have started closing some of those loopholes.
