Netflix Advice

Dear NANOG Gods,

Has anyone heard of a nifty way to cache the netflix library without using their Open Connect Appliance? I am not trying to dodge copyrights, or even dodge the netflix service, I am simply trying to find a way to store the netflix library remotely for users behind satellite connections. If any of you have figured this out, or if there is a Netflix person out there listening, feel free to contact me offline.

Thanks a lot, and have a Merry Christmas!


Are you looking to cache it at your ground station? Or on the client side?


Client/remote side.

Hi Warren,

Unfortunately there's no way to cache at the client end on servers that we
do not control for various reasons (not all technical). You can reach out
to me at dtemkin(at) if you'd like to discuss further.
