Rogers + Netflix = old media

Unless I’m missing something here, this content deal between Rogers and Netflix might as well be delivered on. Region encoded DVD. Restricting access by country for internet
streaming is remarkably traditional.

Perhaps the other deals that have been struck for Orange is the New Black and Arrested Development might also be region blocked as well actually … Are we making progress or just rebuilding the matrix again?

    Nothing has changed. Everything is region locked (take it from someone who lives in Europe). Even shows that used to be international friendly like The Daily Show/Colbert/South Park have all been blocked internationally in the last few months. VPN services are loving the extra business. There isn’t any “new media” thinking coming from broadcasters; only attempts to lock in their monopolies.
