Basically there are two opinions on Netflix and blocking:

  • TL;DR: People use VPNs for security, Netflix fucks them up, they hate Netflix for that and just torrent that shit.
  • tl;dr If you have issues with Netflix on public Wifi, contact the provider and forward tr@netflix.com to them so they can settle issues.
