Netflix, local rival Hotstar to censor content in India - sources | Reuters

A draft of an unofficial code that will be adopted by Netflix, Hotstar and other local players, seen by Reuters, said that the platforms would prohibit content that shows a child “engaged in real or simulated sexual activities”, is disrespectful of India’s national flag or encourages “terrorism”.
The draft code also said that companies which sign it will bar content “which deliberately and maliciously intends to outrage religious sentiments of any class, section or community.”
