Readily Available Web Content Raises Concerns

With an affordable price of only RO3 per month, Netflix is gaining ground ever since it made its debut in the sultanate. With (both original, TV series and movies) ad free streaming, Netflix shows have been very popular among viewers of diverse age groups.

However, the challenge lies in censoring the content that is sometimes overloaded with explicit scenes and expletives.

Tariq al Barwani, an IT expert said, “I agree that there are shows that have content which are not apt for children and families. The best suggestion can be that an individual, community or nations negotiate with the brand so that Netflix can customise and does not play certain series and movies as per the region. It is tough to censor the content, and doing so always gives rise to piracy.”

He added that American media-services provider certainly poses unique challenges to the authority, but so does YouTube and all other Internet video platforms.

The censor issue is quite big in Turkey. The supreme board of radio and television in Turkey has a reputation for censoring irrelevant stuff. Netflix is very important for supporting freedom of speech.
