Netflix refuses to comply with new Russian rules – POLITICO

American streaming giant Netflix has responded to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine by saying it will not comply with new Russian regulations to stream 20 state-backed channels.

Netflix will be subject to a new set of obligations in Russia on March 1 after it was added to a list of “audio-visual services” overseen by the country’s media regulator, Roskomnadzor, last year.

The obligations mean Netflix will have to stream 20 Russian federal television stations, including channels like Channel One, NTV, and one run by the Russian Orthodox Church, Spas. Channel One in particular is closely linked to the Kremlin.

“Given the current situation, we have no plans to add these channels to our service,” a Netflix spokesperson said Monday night. Netflix refuses to comply with new Russian rules - POLITICO
