If they make mention of it sure, iirc it was never a blanket ban on any of the TV networks but rather specifically the ad's referencing global mode.

Is it possible to change Netflix regions with Orcon's Global Mode just like you can with Unotelly?

Bugger.  Will have to keep Unotelly for now as there is stuff I watch on the Canadian Netflix such as Suits.  Will be good if this could be implemented at some stage.

Thanks for the speedy reply.
