Digital Proxy Wars: Unblockers making NetFlix Discontent

Times of India reports that video-streaming service provider Netflix's subscribers will no longer be able to use proxies to watch content not available in their home country. Subscribers often resort to proxies, or servers that facilitate access to Internet content not available locally, to watch Netflix's popular shows such as "House of Cards" and "Orange is the New Black." "If all of our content were globally available, there wouldn't be a reason for members to use proxies or unblockers," David Fullagar, Netflix's vice president of content delivery architecture, wrote in a blog.

The company said it would clamp down on these proxies or unblockers in a few weeks. The announcement comes just a week after Netflix went live in more than 130 countries, India, Nigeria, Russia and Saudi Arabia, covering almost the entire globe except China.
