If I was Netflix, I would pull out of SA and show the FPB the middle finger :D

Does anyone here have showmax, does it show the FPB ratings?

PS I noticed this a few years ago Origin (EA Store) switched over to the FPB rating and displays the correct logos, but unfortunately at the same time drastically cut its library and removed old games that werent rated by FPB, one of the reason why some of the free promotional games instantly defaults to Plants VS Zombies , and arent available here.

“N̶e̶t̶f̶l̶i̶x̶ BitTorrent is actually an excellent example of online content that the FPB should regulate,”
Fixed that.
But since they can't regulate BitTorrent, they would rather extort money from Netflix.

So these are the options then:

1. Netflix coughs up the penalties and pays these extortionate fees going forward. Currently inaccessible VOD services are put off SA and the Netflix catalogue grows very slowly.
2. Netflix pulls out of SA. Other inaccessible VOD services are put off SA. The FPB claims a victory for SA morality.

Sucks no matter how it goes down.
