Netflix, which recently expanded to more than 130 countries including Nigeria, is getting serious about controlling the access of its content.
The popular movie and TV shows streaming service will stop subscribers from using internet proxies and VPN to view content that is not available in their countries.
David Fullagar is Vice President of Content Delivery Architecture at Netflix posted in a company blog:
Netflix has licensing agreements that vary from country to country which leads to people using VPNs to access it’s offerings from abroad. The streaming service which is present in more than 190 countries said it would increase efforts in the next few weeks to block the use of such proxies.
Meanwhile, ETISALAT has launched a special data package for Nigerians who intend to use the American video-on-demand platform.
