tdgeek:NonprayingMantis:They have said that they only want people to use Netflix in the country that they are in, so that seems to remove CC location as a means to block. They support me using US Netflix when I am in the US. They should support me using Kiwi Netflix from anywhere, thats normal, expected, and a whole lot easier, and avoids any issue of content I am used to that a foreign Netflix doesn't have.Rikkitic:but the crucial point you are missing is how much hassle people are willing to go through to get Netflix. the reason people use the likes of unblock-us is that it is very very simple. If you had to use another service to verify your address in the USA, and maybe use a US-based credit card, etc etc those are all things that make it 'too hard' for most people. I've lost count of the number of people I've shown unblock-us and they just can't be bothered to even do that. Adding in an extra hurdle is going to cut down the number of people immensely. Yes, there will always be workarounds for those of us in the know or who are willing to jump through hoops - but Netflix don't need to stop everyone. They just need to stop most people. Address verification or CC location would do exactly that.NonprayingMantis: Nothing the unblockers could do to fix that and it would stop the vast majority of non-USA users from having a USA based account)Address services already exist. This would just be an incentive for more. Measures like this will only stimulate counter-measures.
I pay for NF via Paypal. Are they going to block that??
