Netflix blocking VPNs

I have been a Netflix user for a long time and I was fairly satisfied. Sure, there is different media content depending on what part of the world you are, but it wasn't that difficult to access that content. Using extensions like mediahint, proxmate and hola you could easily access the website as if you were on that country.

 

And now this: Netflix is actually blocking VPNs.

 

WHY?

I just don't get it. There is an uproar from its members and I completely agree! Plus it's only a matter of time for people to find a way around this. This is why piracy will never be eliminated.

 

The semi-good news is that I cannot only access the US version. Yet.

And there are people who use VPNs for privacy reasons.

 

If this isn't resolved soon, I will terminate the subscription too and go back to downloading.
