In January 2016, Netflix announced a shocking move that would affect a huge portion of their customers; that they would be limiting and restricting the use of VPNs with their online streaming service. With many VPNs now unable to work with Netflix blocking VPNs, but Le VPN still works. The threat of preventing VPN use to access overseas Netflix libraries has been prevalent for a long time, but no action had actually been taken until now.
TV and film studios have long piled pressure on the online streaming giant to prevent customers from using a VPN to access content but Netflix have always turned a blind eye to those who do. The reason for the varying libraries is down to regional restrictions employed by the studios themselves, merely a way to earn more for selling the overseas rights in different regions. This of course angers paying customers who are being denied the ability to legally watch content they already pay for.
There has been a great amount of backlash against Netflix’s latest policy change, with an online petition already at 36,000 signatures 3 months after their decision, surveys are even forecasting a rise in piracy. Netflix revolutionised the landscape of TV and film, with a changing model to keep up with today’s technology, something that the studios have failed to do. So what was once a great tool to combat piracy, this move may well send many customer’s back to the illegal route of watching content online.
With this day and age of super fast internet, instant communication with anyone around the world, the ability to stream HD quality TV shows and movies, the industry has to adapt. As Netflix has already proved, people are more than happy to pay for their TV shows and films streamed online, as long as they get the choice and ease of watching as they should. With Netflix clamping down on VPNs, this will only push people away again.
With so many VPNs now blocked, you’ll be pleased to know that Le VPN is not blocked. With Le VPN you can still bypass regional restrictions and watch any Netflix library in the world, including Netflix libraries in the US and in France.
