Regional Netflix

Hi guys. Sorry but I did not renew my Pro subscription. With Netflix blocking VPN and Proxy users, the Pro subscription adds absolutely zero value to any Non-US user.

I do not need to import films anymore: I did that once when I joined and that was it. The only pro feature left for me to use was to filter my watchlist by Netflix Instant availability, which is hardly worth the subscription price anyway.

Now, the feature is worthless, since I can't check the availability with my local (Brazil) Netflix catalogue.

Please consider this, you guys might be losing a lot of people because of that.

    Can't blame LB for restrictions imposed by Netflix.. personally, the best way to track other Netflix regions is with uNoGS.com paired with a list or other place to save bookmarks.. I use booky.io which is extremely handy especially because you can sort in different sections & categories in those sections.. also while Netflix may be frustratingly wise at catching VPNs, there are still plenty of good ones, like ExpressVPN, PrivateVPN, etc. who frequently refresh their sources.

    Plus, the real best part of Pro (& up) on LB is the ~statistics! So if you don't enjoy that kind of thing, then yeah, probably not worth subscribing to for you; but it's good for a lot of others! xD

    But I do agree it would be nifty if I could browse all regional Netflix libraries over on here.. just too bad Netflix doesn't have a public API so it's not possible to direct-connect to it ;(

    xoxo

    We already support non-US Amazon and iTunes, as we generate those ourselves through public APIs. For other services, we rely on GoWatchIt for availability data, and they only have this for the US at this time. When they expand, we will too.

    I'm in the UK and in a similar situation. If non-US Amazon and Netflix information was available I'd go 'Pro' immediately.

    Would love to have a regional Netflix filter as well. The default is US, and even though this is understandable from a business point of view, I would really appreciate a Netflix Netherlands filter.
