Some members use proxies or "unblockers" to access titles available outside their territory. To address this, we employ the same or similar measures other firms do. This technology continues to evolve and we are evolving with it. That means in coming weeks, those using proxies and unblockers will only be able to access the service in the country where they currently are. We are confident this change won't impact members not using proxies.

Good luck with that.

This whole proxy thing aside, does anyone know what happens when a US customer takes their device on vacation (ie to keep the kids entertained during travel)? Does netflix block your normal content then?


If Netflix is available in the country that you are in, you will see their "locally" available content, i.e. you might no longer be able to see shows you saw in your home country before.

If Netflix is not available in the country that you are in, you'll have no content at all.
