A colleague recently sent me an email stating:

I have a Netflix account and would like to show a documentary in my World History class. I am able to access the website when I log onto the internet, but when I hit the play button, it won’t allow me to watch the video because In Private Browsing mode is activated.  It looks like that preference is set by the Network administrator. Is there a way to get around this?  Thanks!
