yes, this has just happened to me. i spent an hour yesterday in a chat
with netflix customer service and never once was tor mentioned.

i signed in and out of nexflix, removed and re-added the channel to my
roku, and did a whois query for them on my router's ip address. i should
have a log of this discussion- if it is of any value.

to me, if i have to choose between tor and netflix, it's easy: tor wins.

from this tread, i don't get the sense that netflix is interested in
changing anything. it is only speculation, but i'd guess there's a
financial incentive provided to netflix for hostility to tor.

do i have to say anything other than cloudflare?

well, there are many things to do with my time besides watching teevee.
although i just started watching occupied [okkupert] which i liked a lot ...

\js: !
