after reading through the forums i've noticed how there's a fair few people talking about how either, they don't get X anime in their region, etc etc. And i know that this is for good reasons.

I was just thinking, the way that anime is blocked to certain regions is by IP right?

So couldn't you set it so, if the anime cannot be played in your region it'll block your browser from viewing it?

Say for instance i'm tuning in from country X, when i go to the view anime list it'd only show me the three series currently avaliable to me instead of the XXX avaliable to america.

Just a thought.

Yea basically everything but Search Results is region filtered. So if they look at the homepage, Anime, Drama or Lineup pages, they will only see a list of shows that are available in their area.

The problem is no one likes to be restricted from accessing a show they want to watch which is natural but there's unfortunately not much we can do about that.

People just love to complain ^__^
They probably find other media on other people's profile watch list. Stumble upon it there or in the news forums and then complain when they're not allowed to watch it.


I think that is really arrogant of you to say and I think It should be free for everyone and especially here in europe because it is not really nice to be selfish.
