Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) has announced that it would be paying people $4,000 for spending 2-weeks on its sets in Europe and Middle-East and the company would also make all the travel arrangements. The job requires the people to take photos of the sets and post them on Instagram. All applications are to be received through Instagram and the company would select only four candidates.

Candidates are asked to showcase their skills, by selecting their best Instagram photos and add “#grammaster3”. Applications would close on March 6. NFLX stated that it would shortlist a total of 25-candidates for further interview and paperwork, by March 11.

Added to opening the exciting new jobs, the company has also announced that it would be conducting a crackdown on VPNs and unblockers, being used to access Netflix content from other countries. This means that Netflix would finally be able to implement its policy on region settings. The success of the campaign was visible when people started posting complaints on Reddit. Users began complaining that they were unable to stream content, visible to users outside their region, using VPNs and unblockers.

Netflix has always had a “no VPN” policy, but so far it had remained unconcerned about enforcing the rule. However, a recent rise in concerns from content license holders made the company step up. The Netflix VP of content delivery announced that the content on Netflix differs by territory, up to varying degrees. As such, the company has to respect the practice of licensing content by geographic territories and enforce its initial policy.

When Netflix announced that it would be stepping up against VPNs, in January, UnoTelly, a DNS service, had stated that it would remain unaffected by the ruling. However, even UnoTelly seems to have accepted defeat. The company recently announced that it could no longer be used to access geographically-blocked content. UnoTelly is yet to specify a reason for its change in stance.

Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) lost 1.46% of its share value during the February 29 session, after having a trade volume of 13.66 million, to reach a close at $93.41.
