    Every time when India is terrorized by stanis, Indian Muslims have provided support to those stani terrorists. Enough is enough. Excluding the SICKulars, any Indian who wants to contribute to the war against terrorism in India, should stop buying things made in an Islamic country and stop doing business with a Muzzie owned store/business. You have to act!

      They would block all except regional versions. Netflix has a different version for each country it operates in and they go to great lengths to protect it.

        There can be two problems which can affect Netflix in India. There are barely any high speed true unlimited(no data caps) internet packages in India which is required for any streaming service as FHD videos take a lot of bandwidth. Secondly a high amount of censorship might make make many of the shows not worth seeing.

          Why does Netflix bother? Who wants to watch the sanskari versions of television shows? I'd rather stream it and get it uncensored.
