"We remain sensitive to preferences of members where we operate. Netflix will continue to make market-specific decisions based on the preferences of our members. You may see some content behind a PIN in certain markets where such a practice is expected by our members or required by applicable law," a Netflix spokesperson told Channel NewsAsia.
Singapore telcos and pay-TV providers Singtel and StarHub are keen on teaming up with Netflix.
"We are exploring a partnership with Netflix, so that our viewers will have the widest selection of content with the convenience of their StarHub set-top box," said StarHub in a statement yesterday (7 January 2015).

"In view of offering even more quality content, we will be working closely with Netflix to deliver great promotions to our customers.
