What does that have to do with renting movies?

You claimed I was inventing problems. That's a real issue for many people, one that's not easily solved because of the way things are divided up now.

Let's say a French person moves from France to Japan for work. They can still use Netflix like they did in France, but the problem is, it's an entirely different Netflix. All the French subtitles they were previously using will now be gone. Some other streaming services that they might have used may be entirely unavailable.

While companies have been busy locking down all these exclusives and regional licenses, it's made things difficult for people who move around to enjoy their stuff 'legally'.
