CNN’s The Five is the most popular series on Netflix.
While the show has received rave reviews and has been viewed over 50 million times, some people might not be able to watch it on Netflix because of the network’s new rules that prohibit streaming video content that is harmful to minors.
Netflix has said that if a show has a “harmful nature,” it can’t be streamed for at least six months.
If a show’s content is deemed “substantial” and shows that are “harmless” or “minor” will still be allowed to stream, it will no longer be eligible to stream.
In its announcement of the changes, Netflix said the network “recognizes that some content is particularly harmful to children and that streaming it for six months could expose minors to content that could be harmful to them.
For this reason, Netflix will not be releasing these shows to subscribers until we have determined that they are no longer harmful to kids.”
While Netflix’s new policy makes it easier for viewers to stream content that they may want to watch without worrying about the network violating minors’ privacy, some have raised questions about whether the network has gone too far.
Netflix said it is still evaluating the new rules.
“We’ve listened to our community of viewers and we’re continuing to review the new policy to ensure it does not unintentionally create a dangerous environment,” Netflix said in a statement.
“Our goal is to be the best place for people to watch and share their favorite shows and movies.”
