Netflix VPN detection - actual engineer needed


That would be bad.

At least in my case.

My addresses (,, 2620:0:930::/48) are not from a known residential ISP or mobile ISP.

However, they are within my household and nowhere else. There?s no valid reason for Netflix to block them. They are not a server or proxy host.
They are not being used to subvert geo-fencing. They?re just my home addresses that I have had for many years and use in order to have
stable addressing across provider changes.
