The streaming video service is responsible for a staggering 35% of all bandwidth usage in North America. With a service yet to be released in Australia Netflix is already making an impression with domestic consumers. According to a recent study of those Australians with at least one media subscription, 27 percent are currently accessing Netflix through a VPN (effectively accessing illegally from the US).
