[/blockquote]From George Orwell’s famous novel Animal Farm, there was a famous quote — ‘All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others,’ and Netflix seems to take this inequality to a different level according to our findings. You need not rejoice that we finally have Netflix in Uganda, some of the TV series on Netflix you have been dying to watch might be on the “will not be available in Uganda” list. Most people are still wondering why some of Netflix’s own original content features on this list of missing titles. Those traveling to Uganda from other countries like the USA where Netflix airs most if not all its shows must know what they will be missing out once they arrive in the pearl of Africa.
In each country, Netflix offers different shows and movies and there are several important reasons for the service disparities when crossing borders. The bottom line is that just as Netflix is in the business of streaming video to its users around the world, the studios are in the business of earning profits on their content. With current copyright laws and agreements in the US, Netflix negotiates with each studio to arrange specific agreements to stream titles in each territory.
“As to your question about… different versions like “airplane cuts,” we’ll have to see and we’ll have to learn. I think entertainment companies have to make compromises over time… the thrust of what we’re trying to do is have the artistic vision be consistent through the world.” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, added that this isn’t a new issue for studios “so we’ll just have to do the same,”
In addition to globally distributed movies and TV shows, Netflix already has geographically specific content geared toward different countries and territories. After our full hand on review with the on-demand streaming service, we discovered that some titles are missing. This is why we have created the Techjaja list for the 15 greatest TV shows you will miss on UG Netflix now, but are available in other countries like the US.
