A popular streaming service explains that it is trying to push down piracy in countries with high rates of piracy. Therefore, Netflix is trying to set prices of its service in accordance with the local piracy rates, because in places with rampant piracy its paid service won’t be popular.
At the moment, Netflix accounts for about 60 million subscribers all over the world, being the biggest competitor of piracy in providing access to TV shows and films. At the same time, piracy offers critical business intelligence to the streaming service – for instance, Netflix uses local piracy statistics to determine which content it should offer in various countries. Moreover, it turned out that a piracy rate in the region is a main factor in Netflix pricing strategy outside the United States.
Netflix announced that it continues to cooperate with the studios to address the VPN issue but the service still prefers to focus on the battle against piracy. And here the company claims it manages to push down piracy in the markets with high piracy rates by getting access. This means that its pricing strategy works and Netflix converts many pirates. So, the next problem on the agenda is to make VPNs obsolete by offering services all over the world without any geographical restrictions.

|I so agree Netflix is crap a must to avoid I use none of|
the Netflix copies they all stink; torrents rule : )
|Netflix does offer fair pricing for what they provide, however, you'll never see last nights tv episode 2hours after it aired, nor do they offer porn. UNtil that happens expect piracy to flourish.|
|Insidious,like a cancer they move into an area and corrupt it. Once the Fools are converted than they find out what they lost. And that is always to late.|
I can imagine what kind of plans and tactics they will use. Whatever it takes im sure. If they win its fat city. Its a conflict that is worth winning.
And as I have said before, they have to win cause any other outcome will be the end of the framework of that antiquated business model.
All of the broadcast networks and movie ,tv and video all of em are all in this. They all operate within the same framework.
And if they do prevail they will make the jump to bitorrant tech as fast as possible then it would no longer be sharing it would be them delivering the content but with there different Geo. and regional controls in place.
And they will will no longer have to create the media such as disks,ect.They then can dispose of all the workers who work in those areas tech is always what closes out jobs.
They are ready to embrace the tech we has used so well, but first they have to remove us from the equasion.
Than they will better serve the advertisers who are behind the curtains. Because the bottom line is getting product to those who will pay thus all the spyware and such to know who wants what and SELL it to them.
Us giving everything away is making them crazy.
We are the polar opposite to everything that makes there world go around.
We can't coexist and and there is no compromise.
Reminds me of The Truman Show.
So how is it gonna end?
|If you view content as product of knowledge it's not something that can rationally be sold, piracy is just natures way of bringing balance to a man made concept that's at odds with the law that govern the universe.|

This is a weird assumption, as VPN's will NEVER be obsolete ... too many people and companies care about their privacy to stop using them. In some cases they're VITAL for inter-location communications.
The policy may make access to NETFLIX servers via VPN obsolete, but the VPN's will still be there, and still be used.
|yeah netflix if it was even free i still wouldnt use it.|
|For some of us...It's easier to setup a torrent box, let it run all the time. Especially us people who have terribly SLOW internet service, that is under 3mb down. There's no way in hell, one can stream Netflix at that speed.||
