Netflix has denied tightening restrictions on consumers who watch US Netflix from overseas by using virtual private networks (VPNs).
The streaming service was forced to respond after customers around the world complained that they could no longer delve into the treasure trove that is US Netflix.
Netflix said there had been no change in the way it handles VPN connections and claimed it has always blocked them and will continue to do so in future.
Until now, users have tesified that it's been fairly easy to work around Netflix's security measures and access US Netflix from abroad.
All you had to do was set up a VPN and you could trick US Netflix into thinking you were in the United States. You were then free to roam and watch anything you liked.
But now users have complained that they're locked out of US Netflix.
Netflix will launch in Australia and New Zealand early this year.
