Netflix Will Not Crackdown on VPNs

Netflix Will Not Crackdown on VPNs

The service officially denied rumors that it is cracking down on those users who use VPNs to watch shows not intended for their country. In the meantime, some virtual private network providers reported access problems by its customers, calling it “a brand new development”. The VPN providers say they received reports from a handful of clients that Netflix blocked access due to VPN or proxy usage. However, they had to admit it was the very first time Netflix displayed this type of error message to a VPN user.

It is widely known that Netflix users often use VPNs in order to watch shows that are not licensed in their country. For example, the American version of the streaming video service offers such shows as Friends, Twin Peaks and Broad City, none of which are accessible to British customers.

The popular way to surpass these restrictions is to use a VPN service in order to make a connection look like it originates in the desired country. Although this way is not technically illegal, the use of such a system usually violates the terms of service for the streaming provider.

After a handful of users complained that their VPN connections are now being blocked by the service, Netflix officially claimed that it never changed the way it handled such connections. At the same time, the company pointed out that it had always blocked VPNs when possible, and continues to do so, using industry standard methods to prevent unauthorized VPN use.

In the meantime, many users of VPN services report no issues with Netflix so far. However, they are still worried that Netflix may start blocking them too, especially people from countries where Netflix don’t operate at all – for example, in Australia.

It is perfectly known that commercial VPN providers are used for many purposes, and not all of them are legal. Lots of users appreciate the security and privacy benefits of the virtual private networks, as those mask a visitor’s true IP address from the accessed website, and therefore prevent connections from being tracked. Finally, VPNs help circumvent content filters at workplaces and educational institutions.

Despite all those purposes, it is also known that VPNs are also popular in protecting people against legal restrictions on their Internet use, including viewing video intended for other nations and downloading content from cyberlockers.

xbmc/kodi is awesome... media player plus entertainment hub... can't beat it but not everyone wants to spend time finding the best add-ons and providers for content

No avatarThis news is SOOO old. Netflix didn't deny they were cracking down on VPN's, they denied that their policy changed and that they have ALWAYS been cracking down on VPN's. Which IS true.

Get you friggin story straight. Why is it so hard? You can't even read stories elsewhere a week in advance and get the facts right. Why go through the effort of putting out news that is incorrect? I just don't get it.

mwd25 avatarHey Timbo....lets recap what this story said.
1 - The service officially denied rumors that it is cracking down on those users who use VPNs to watch shows not intended for their country. True

2 - VPN providers say they received reports from a handful of clients that Netflix blocked access due to VPN or proxy usage. True

3 - After a handful of users complained that their VPN connections are now being blocked by the service, Netflix officially claimed that it never changed the way it handled such connections. At the same time, the company pointed out that it had always blocked VPNs when possible, and continues to do so. True

4 - Many users of VPN services report no issues with Netflix so far. However, they are still worried that Netflix may start blocking them too. True

Im not sure what part of the story they didnt get straight?? Did you read the article??? Get YOUR friggin story straight, maybe take a class on reading and comprehension...is that so hard? Why go through the effort of posting a comment complaining about a story that doesnt have its fact straight when every fact in the story is correct. I just dont get it.

No avatarAm I missing something here? People have VPNs to hide themselves and download in secrecy. Why therefore would you want to buy from Netflix when you can download any movie you want free of charge?

No avatar@mwd25,

There is not a single valid quote in the entire article. Why not quote Netflix on what was actually said? Right...

Handfuls of people? wtf Wow, "crackdown"!

Just read the headline. There is absolutely no support for the headline. The article went on to explicitly say Netflix DID shut down people, and that this is also Netflix's policy. Please quote me the support for the headline.


In response to your post:
1. I'm claiming that Netflix DID NOT say what the article is implying. Hence, quote them if they said it! I can't read a single article in a newspaper/magazine/book without a quote from a valid source. This is just garbage writing and it confuses me why he bothers.

2. Could be, but what VPN providers? How many users?

3. Where is the quote for what Netflix said? After all, its an 'official' statement, right?

4. Netflix has been shutting down DNS/VPN users for years. News at 11. Of course users should always be worried about violating the terms of service. They have contracts worth billions based around territories. You're an idiot if you're not worried.


It's semantics. Some people got shutdown, so they say there is a "crackdown". Netflix says, "hey, we've always been doing this, we're not on some new mission". A crackdown implies an extra effort ("an increased effort to enforce a law or rule"), Netflix is saying it's all in a day's work.

You're not going to get some smooth graph of VPN's detected and purged. It's going to be peaks and valley's. A few today, a few thousand another day.

This can easily be avoided BY USING SOME QUOTES TO BACK UP STATEMENTS. Otherwise, you're just giving opinions, not facts.

Just click on any articles found in Google. You know, the first week of January.. hence why I called this old news. There really is no excuse for this article weeks after much better articles have been available to steal from.

mwd25 avatarOk Timbo, Im going to try this one last time, then I give up.

You claim there is absolutely no support for the headline. The headline reads "Netflix Will Not Crackdown on VPNs" This is a fact, they will not crackdown,they will just continue to apply the same policy they have always had. There will be no crackdown.You say in your response " Some people got shutdown, so they say there is a "crackdown" No one said that,not Netflix,not the author of the article,not any customers. You cherry pick one word from the article that you clearly cant comprehend, "crackdown" and go on some tangent about how wrong the article was.You ever hear of taking something out of context? Dont just type the word "crackdown" and then blab on and on how "they" said crackdown......You did,out of context,no one else.

Now, I want you to take a deep breath and read this really slow. You say that there is not a single valid quote in the entire article. In your original post you say
"Netflix didn't deny they were cracking down on VPN's, they denied that their policy changed and that they have ALWAYS been cracking down on VPN's"

OK....got it....read what you said in your original post one more time
"Netflix didn't deny they were cracking down on VPN's, they denied that their policy changed and that they have ALWAYS been cracking down on VPN's"

Now, in the article, the author says that Netflix response to some peoples claims was
"Netflix officially claimed that it never changed the way it handled such connections. At the same time, the company pointed out that it had always blocked VPNs when possible, and continues to do so"

You see that? You claim there isnt one valid fact in the article but then you essentially say THE SAME EXACT THING the author quoted Netflix as saying.

So not only are there valid quotes but you,yourself are quoting them!!!!!
Now,is the story old news,yes,but who cares,since you are the only one complaining then I would suggest not reading it if your so up on current affairs.

Lastly, if Im a reporter and my friend comes to me and says, Netflix just blocked me using a VPN, they must be cracking down because it always worked before, and my brother and my neighbor tell me the same thing. Regardless of if they are cracking down,thats what these three morons think so im going to put that in my article. They will undoubtedly tell others who will believe it so I will include it in my story, along with the fact that it IS NOT TRUE. I will include Neflix policy in the story to clarify,which is exactly what the author did.

Now you want names and links to the quotes to verify what some VPN customer "claimed" Who cares,its just what a customer claimed and the author pointed out it wasnt true and reported what Netflix policy was.....a policy you included in your original post!!!!!
This isnt The New York Times, its just a torrent site.....chill out.

No avatarI think you learned "facts" from church or something. None of those are "facts" in the schools I went to. You are only paraphrasing if you are not actually quoting. Paraphrasing gets you no points.

And again, HE NEVER QUOTED NETFLIX ONCE. Please learn what a quote is. I should have said "Netflix is basically saying" to explain it. Its NOT a quote from Netflix. My mistake on that.

Just read a better article. Or better yet, read it right from torrent freak! MUCH, much better supported article that clarifies things better. You have names, you have quotes, you know who is saying what. Any of the articles in google search is night and day better.
