For thousands of people all over the world, the move by Netflix to block all VPN access was hugely disappointing and unexpected. Many people have been using VPNs and proxies for years to access Netflix and never expected them to seriously remove access. In Australia for instance, over 250,000 were subscribers and viewers of Netflix before it was even made available there, they simply used a VPN to get access.
Now Netflix have introduced the most effective VPN block ever implemented based on the classification of the IP address of the connection. Commercial IP addresses which most VPN servers have are blocked automatically and will not work on the site. This video demonstrates the issue and shows how one VPN provider has provided a solution.
