Error Code:



"Censorship" refers to any edit to the video or audio used to obscure or eliminate content that may be considered offensive or illegal for broadcast.


Censorship edits impact the Content quality of the asset.  Any obvious edits may be disruptive to a seamless member viewing experience.  In some cases, they may also interfere with/alter the creative intent of the content producer. 

Severity Structure:




The censorship is not legally required and noticeably interferes with the creative storytelling. 

How to Prevent:

If content is airing somewhere other than Netflix, where censorship is required, maintain a separate, uncensored Netflix cut.

Any content that will be exclusive to Netflix should not include any added censorship.


Remove any censorship edits that are not legally required and/ or follow the original creative intent of the content producer.
