Netflix are closing loopholes and cracking down on users that use foreign versions of the streaming service to watch films and shows that aren’t available elsewhere.

So what that basically means is, if you access the US version of Netflix from the UK – which is illegal – you may have your account shut down. And vice versa. They’re basically putting this into place worldwide, as it’s becoming the biggest thorn in the streaming giant’s side.

We’re not sure how hard they’re going to go with this. But we imagine pretty hard, since they’re getting bigger and bigger by the month. So you should probably just accept your countries version of the platform and wait for the shows premiering in other countries patiently.

Sad face.
