Netflix is one of the most popular media streaming services out there. While Netflix has a massive catalog of movies and TV series, it is not the same for everyone.
Different parts of the world have different sets of movies and TV series on Netflix.
While this might make sense from a legal and technical point of view, the end-user pays the same amount of money as everyone else in the world might not like this fact.
Especially if you live anywhere outside the US, chances are your Netflix does not have a lot of popular movies and TV series.
