NetFLIx Con­tro­versy in In­done­sia

The Jakarta Post - SPEAK! - - Updates -

Last month, movie and TV se­ries junkies were in rap­ture over Net ix’s ar­rival to the coun­try. Now ev­ery­one can en­joy the ser­vice on smart­phones or tele­vi­sions and have un­lim­ite– and le­gal–ac­cess to the movies and TV se­ries that Net ix of­fers. How­ever, this may not hap­pen, as re­ports have been cir­cu­lat­ing that the Amer­i­can In­ter­net stream­ing rm might get blocked in In­done­sia due to cen­sor­ship is­sues.

Ac­cord­ing to TechInAsia, In­done­sia’s lm cen­sor­ship board has asked the coun­try’s Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and In­for­ma­tion Min­istry to block the ser­vice. Net ix is known for its con­tro­ver­sial con­tent re­lat­ing to nu­dity and vi­o­lence, among other is­sues. Nev­er­the­less, the nal de­ci­sion is yet to be made, as the govern­ment and other re­lated in­sti­tu­tions are still de­cid­ing how Net ix will be reg­u­lated.
