If Netflix is about consumer choice, shouldn’t the use of VPN be one, too?

Elissa Loi thinks that Netflix shouldn’t punish users for VPN usage before they get their catalogue truly global

Last week, I logged into my Netflix account and tried to catch up on House of Cards - the sole reason I got on Netflix back in the day - before season 4 dropped on 4 March.

Then this happened.

But it’s not as if I didn’t see it coming. Ever since Netflix announced its global launch at CES in January, the end has been in sight for early adopters like myself who’ve been using VPN to access the internet TV service even before it was available in Singapore. 

Where's your chill, Netflix?
