Netflix Wants to Remove International Binge-Watching Borders

Sure, there are feelings of resentment for other countries, hopelessness about the night’s plans and a wishfulness for a better Netflix tomorrow. The streaming service has heard your cries and wants to give everyone access to the same movies and shows by creating a global content library.

Based on varying rights issues, Netflix is limited to what they can and can’t show in certain areas of the world. For example, Better Call Saul is only airing on AMC in the U.S. and Canada. However, the show can be streamed on Netflix just after they air everywhere else because the company has the rights to do so basically anywhere but here.

“The basic solution is for Netflix to get global and have its content be the same all around the world so there’s no incentive to [use a VPN],” Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said, according to The Independent.
