Benjamin writes, "I just started watching the first episode of the Showtime series, The Tudors. I was glad to see that they made this show available. Several minutes into the episode, however, I was surprised to notice that the video had been censored -- in a bawdy scene, with Henry and a lover, her nipples are blurred out! Are Netflix viewers more sensitive to to bare flesh than Showtime subscribers watching on television?"
Netflix gets the movies in the final form from the studios, so it was probably censored by Showtime. If Netflix censored movies they wouldn't carry explicit movies like Shortbus (which Blockbuster Online does not carry).
