Netflix is the undisputed and undefeated king of the over-the-top streaming service platforms. What started as a DVD rental service from Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph in 1997 completely changed how people entertained themselves.
Currently, Netflix holds the record of the most subscribers registered to an over-the-top streaming service with a huge user base of 215 million subscribers worldwide. The streaming giant is also available in 191 countries.
With annual revenue of $25 billion and a step forward into the gaming industry, Netflix has easily announced that it is way ahead of its competitors.
If we talk about compatibility, then Netflix doesn’t disappoint there. It can easily work with the most popular devices/operating systems such as Mac, Windows, Android, iOS, Firestick, Smart TVs, Firestick, Roku, router, Chromebook, and digital media players.
One of the reasons behind Netflix’s popularity is its famous content library. Netflix’s content library comprises an enormous library of 4593 movies and 1157 TV shows, both Netflix own productions and authorized content from different production companies.
Unfortunately, Netflix’s content library is a victim of territorial restrictions. Meaning its content is divided and categorized based on its location. However, there’s a very simple solution to bypass Netflix’s geographical restriction issue.
Yes, we are talking about virtual private networks. You can get VPN for Netflix and stream TV shows and movies that were geographically locked for your respective country.
But can a virtual private network let you access all of Netflix’s content? Let’s try to answer that question today in our blog.
But before we do that, let’s take a look at why the Netflix content library is divided into different categories and which country’s Netflix would offer you the most TV shows and movies.
Why Does Netflix’s Content Vary According To The User’s Location?
Movie companies and production houses invest billions of dollars in their TV shows and movies. Hence, it’s only natural that they’d want to enforce copyright and earn as much as possible for their return investments.
But this copyright or territorial restriction is enforced by the country. Every region or country has different demands for TV shows and movies. For example, a popular movie in Canada might be underrated in the United States.
Due to this technicality, production houses and studios demand more from Netflix to show their content in particular countries.
Netflix can accept the demanded amount for showing the content in one particular country while negotiations for another country don’t reach any conclusion.
So this is the reason why you see different TV shows and movies on Netflix in different countries.
