Live TV streaming service Netflix is getting its own VPN-based live streaming service, dubbed AnimeLive, that allows users to watch live anime without having to download a VPN.
The service, which will be rolled out to users in the UK this week, will let them watch anime on their PC or Mac, but it will only work if they have an active Netflix account.
Users can opt for a VPN-free experience by simply logging into their account and clicking on “More”.
They can then browse through all of the anime that are currently available on Netflix.
This is only available to those in the United States, Canada, the European Union and the United Kingdom, but Netflix will roll it out to other countries, including the United Arab Emirates, India and Brazil, over the coming months.
Users will be able to access AnimeLive through the Netflix app, and will need a VPN to access the service.
This may be a welcome move for those who prefer to watch Netflix content on their own computers rather than through a VPN, but users will have to use the same VPN settings as they do for any other Netflix service.
Users who want to watch on their phones will have the option to do so via a VPN as well, although the service will only be available in the US and Canada.
Users in the Middle East, Africa and parts of Asia will have a slightly more difficult time using AnimeLive because it will be restricted to their country of origin.
This is because Netflix is currently restricted to users from Turkey and India.
The new AnimeLive service will allow users to access anime content from more than 50 countries, though it is unclear if the service is available to users living outside these countries.
It will be up to Netflix to decide whether to expand its AnimeLive offerings outside the US, Canada and Australia.
Users on the U.S. West Coast will have access to the service at a later date.
Netflix will offer AnimeLive in the U, UK, Canada East and the U S. Midwest in the coming weeks.
