It's probably due to licensing restrictions. It's hard to tell with that kind of stuff, so it could be tomorrow, or it could be 10+ years from now.

Don't think we even want it:-

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

Although the management don't seem to know what they're doing all the time, the actual SERVICE is pretty awesome. All the streaming TV (movies and TV shows) you can eat for eight bucks a month. For most North Americans, it's their new favorite babysitter thanks to its extensive child friendly section, all ad-free. For me personally, there's a very high ratio of schlock to quality – but even I think there's enough quality there to justify $8. The old Dr. Who stories and MST3K episodes alone are worth that to me, nevermind the (small) selection of silent movies and (larger) selection of classic films.

They do seriously need to up their game in terms of HD content, but I think we can all guess when that's going to happen.

Well chas you can bet we would not get it for $8 down under. For instance we have no cable TV, however Foxtel in the Metropolitan areas and Austar in the country costs $100 p.m.

This is on par with cable tv costs in the US. I know Netflix is about 6 quid in the UK for the streaming service..

A couple of notes about proxies to circumvent region restrictions (and before you say anything, I think region restrictions/"licensing issues" are stupid):

1. Depending on where you are, what you are doing could be illegal. People in the US and Canada have been charged criminally for using proxies to "steal" content.

2. Regardless of whether a proxy is paid or free, sooner or later it will be blocked and you will be out of whatever you paid/donated.

My suggestion to Adam is to simply invest in an email or phone call to Netflix and *ask them.* You can make a better judgement on using proxies and such once you have the info (or evasion) straight from the horse's mouth.
