Netflix To Block Proxy Access To Content Not Available Locally

It seems anyone using proxies to watch Netflix content not available in their home country is in for a bit of bad news. The company says that it is working on a solution to make all of its content available wherever the service is offered.

Video-streaming service provider Netflix Inc said subscribers will, in a few weeks, no longer be able to use proxies to watch content not available in their home country. Subscribers often resort to proxies, or servers that facilitate access to content that is not locally available, to access Netflix's popular shows such as "House of cards" and "Orange is the new black".
