Netflix is now blocking streamers from bypassing region locks

-many users are using VPNs or custom DNS settings to stream Netflix from regions other than their own (eg- streaming Netflix Canada in the USA)
-Netflix is now trying to stop these loopholes
-VPN services like TorGuard started getting errors when users tried using Netflix
-errors do not seem to be widespread as the Netflix Android app may be updated to block DNS trickery but many believe this is just the beginning
-more money is on the line as Netflix expands globally

UPDATE:
This is untrue as Netflix apparently stated they "haven't changed" the way it handles VPNs but users were still getting blocking errors and there are no clear answers as to why
