I severely doubt that's true , the amount using VPN's was probably tiny.

I assume that also covers the DNS services that 'unlocked' content from other regions, which were easier for people to use and likely more popular than a full VPN.

Yes including those , the reason the studios acted was because it was starting to get put all over the internet with the methods and who to use.

Yes they're blocked too, i personally kept Netflix there is still plenty of content on there and with Netflix making more and more original content 8p/m is an absolute bargain, it was nice why the vpns lasted but these things happen.

Luckily so far (he says touching a large piece of wood) NBC have only blocked the more popular services that blabbermouths who don't realise they are onto a good thing boast about in very public forums,
the more obscure service we both use seems to be working well still and it has a very good customer service who respond to and fix issues very quickly.

Pluto is available over here as well, although I don't know if we get the same content as the US.
