Netflix and Hotstar will prohibit content that shows a child 'engaged in real or simulated sexual activities', is disrespectful of India's national flag or encourages 'terrorism'
Mumbai/New Delhi: Netflix Inc. and home-grown rival Hotstar plan to adopt self-regulation guidelines for content streamed on their platforms in India in an effort to prevent potential government censorship, people familiar with the matter told Reuters. India has film and TV certification bodies that moderate public content but the country’s laws currently do not mandate any censorship of content on online streaming platforms.
