Netflix in Different Countries
In light of our discussion on global TV industries, I was wondering about how Netflix might impact this. For those of you that do not know, Netflix offers you different streaming titles dependent in which country you are streaming from. While studying abroad in the UK, I had to figure out how to make my browser think I was in the US to watch my regular programs online. On the other hand, I made use of all the British titles that I had wanted to see that now were available to me on Netflix for free. Why are only some British television titles available online and vice versa? How does this impact what becomes culturally popular? Furthermore, are all the Netflix produced series available in all countries streaming?
