Hello for free.

If you mean people will resort to pirating again, your probably right.

Netflix can say "bye" to a chunk of their marketshare if they go ahead with this.

Thought this is what was happening, couldn't get on US site on my phone new year eve. (the day I cancelled after a free month )
#11
Back to Torrenting then

Shame. Probably the only reason I keep Netflix these days, being able to use an unblock service & view the entire catalogue. The UK version is so poor in comparison so I'll definately cancel if this happens!

...and goodbye to law suits filed in the US from organisations involved in copyright control.

Those costs would not have been negligible if the cases had gone to trial.

Fair point.

The rate of piracy will go up though and piracy is free. Who ends up losing?

Piracy exists regardless.

Even when charging a single penny for something, somebody will feel the cost unjust & will steal it!

I feel you may have missed my point.

Piracy exists and there are those, granted, that wont pay a cent while its possible to download for free, but with the advent of US netflix accessible to non US citizens, there was a sizable amount of people willing to pay something. Making this content unavailable to them will drive some of them to seek it using piracy methods.

These corporations need to cut a deal with netflix, ask for a cut and agree to make the content available to non us citizens.

Probably because you did not elaborate initially.

...and some will use alternate service providers.
...and some will find other methods of circumventing the process.
...and some will buy physical media.
...and some will do nothing as they knew what they were doing was not sanctioned in the first place.

The corporations are not solely part of the process to release content outside of their local region.

Overseas laws to prevent material being available, & to protect the rights (& revenue) of the artists involved in the production of the content, are there for good reason.

dns settings are a set off numbers within your network setup.

I change mine and this tricks my xbox to think that is in the USA

Google it as it would explain better

The corporations have cut a deal, its called Sky, Uk netflix, BT tv, C4, BBC, C5 etc etc

If the movie studios and organisations put their efforts into making a better system rather than all this nonsense we'd all be better off.

You're never going to stop piracy, but you can lure people away. At the moment they seem to be hell-bent on pushing people toward it.

Sure. It's easy to Google what DNS means for those that don't know as it's just an acronym. Getting more precise info with regard to Netflix I'm sure brings up a whole load of search results hence my request for elaboration.
If there are no friendly souls here I'll search myself.

spot on, I know a lot of people who used to download tv shows who have stopped now they can use US Netflix, guess what they will do if they can't anymore.

To be fair to Ed, I think it is you that need to elaborate, for example what device are you using?
Also there have been quite a few threads on here about Netflix & DNS, a simple search may help...

Well i will certainly drop my 4 devices sub to 2 as my kids use the kids section loads, but i see little reason to watch Netflix UK the content just isn't there. and id like to know exactly how they intend to block UK viewers i could just do what i do with HULU and sign up for a US account.

True.


- Single, cheap music tracks (compared to whole album only)
- No region locking
- No DRM
- Unlimited streaming of EVERYTHING for a small monthly fee

I'd pay £20-25 per month for a Spotify equivalent for movies, like a Netflix+ if you like, but no. It seems they are all idiots and they don't want my money.

that reminds me I still need to download anger management since it looks like they will not bother releasing the series 3 dvd over here the scumbags. I hate it so much when they start selling dvds of a series and then just stop before the series ends, its a insult to the customer denying them the full set. Of course the Americans get the full set they always do, stupid region locking and stupid customer hating companies :(

I like Spotify and Internet radio, nice and free, I don't mind the odd advert I grew up listening to the radio and of course trying to record off it onto maxell tapes so I'm used to em.

Series 2 has like 100 episodes. I only got to like episode 66. Did that moody cow that ran away because she had feelings for charlie ever come back. Kate I think her name was.

there is no series 2 theres 1 season of 100 episodes but they split it into series for the dvds series 2 dvd goes up to about episode 30, I wouldn't know what the hell you're talking about, I don't have satellite so haven't seen it, I thought I'd be a good girl and buy it on dvd as they released them but it looks like that was a stupid idea, series 3 came out in the US over 6 months ago and a email to the UK distributor resulted in diddly squat, no reply so its not looking good imo, teach me for going the legal route they clearly don't care for the customer at all, last time I buy dvds of series before it has all been released on dvd.

Shame. I was looking to sign up to Netflix (and then US Netflix) to watch Sons Of Anarchy. Easier to buy the box set off ebay, watch it, and sell it on after. Netflix's loss is ebays gain.
