I have a subcription to a program which displays TV shows and Movies. However, some TV shows and Movies are blocked in my country but exist in the same program in different regions such as America or Europe.

Is it haram to (illegally) pirate the shows that are blocked in my region even though I own a subscription to the program?

  • Why not VPN? As long as the creator gets their money, it should be fine. – Nano Adam Oct 27 at 18:12
  • The problem is the service stops as soon as it detects a VPN/Proxy.. – Ahmed Oct 27 at 19:46
  • What service you speaking of specifically? – Nano Adam Oct 28 at 12:56
  • I use Netflix. I apologize for not clarifying earlier. – Ahmed Oct 28 at 14:32
  • What I hear is that if the creator gets its money, its fine. But you will have to research into how Netflix gets it shows. I think this might be a fatwa. Will let you know if I find something related. – Nano Adam Oct 28 at 17:33
