Forget about streaming US Netflix content abroad

netflix new Netflix is tightening its grip on some of your favorite TV shows and movies.

The video-streaming service said Thursday it plans to take new steps to prevent customers from streaming content that isn’t officially available in their country.

“In coming weeks, those using proxies and unblockers will only be able to access the service in the country where they currently are,” David Fullagar, vice president of content delivery architecture at Netflix, wrote in a blog post. Fullagar conceded that these methods wouldn’t be necessary if Netflix offered the same slate of TV shows and movies globally.

Because of content-licensing deals, Netflix’s catalog varies widely from country to country, and that means the list of viewing options depends on where users are when they log in. Those in Australia can’t stream “Parks and Recreation,” for instance, while those in the UK don’t get “The Walking Dead.”
