Subscribers of video-streaming service provider Netflix will no longer be able to use proxies to watch content not available in their home country.

Subscribers often resort to proxies, or servers that facilitate access to internet content not available locally, to watch Netflix's popular shows such as House of Cards and Orange is the New Black.

The company says it would clamp down on these proxies or unblockers in a few weeks.

The announcement comes just a week after Netflix went live in more than 130 countries, covering almost the entire globe except China.
