Hi Grant,

Philosophically, Netflix agrees with you. Unfortunately they have to
keep the studios happy or many of their content contracts evaporate.
And too many content owners care very much where you are right this
instant. Because they are unreasonable luddites who think that
geographic monopolies make good business sense.
