So I'm an Australian customer and have been watching Drifters this season. I logged in today to watch the latest episode and suddenly I get the message "Sorry, due to licensing limitations, videos are unavailable in your region".
What happened? I've been able to watch all of the episodes up until now. Is it something to do with the Funimation + Crunchyroll partnership thing?

Was that show even available to Australian viewers?

Drifters was never licensed for Australia by Crunchyroll. Kind of weird that was available .

It was never available in Australia on Crunchyroll. You must have used a proxy (knowingly or unknowingly) to circumvent the region lock.

As others have stated, it isn't a case of something being taken away from you, but you having access to something you were not supposed to. The territories for the series per the original announcement:

USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Netherlands.

Drifters is a nbc Universal show so only gets a straight to DVD release in Australia by Universal pictures Australia in 2-3 years time. As they don't use internet streaming for some reason.
All shows published by nbc Universal on crunchyroll are region blocked in Australia. So if you have watched anything by them you have bypassed region restrictions.
