EU Suggests ‘Cross-Border Portability’ For Online VOD Services 11 December 2015

The European Union wants to allow consumers access to their subscriptions to online content such as TV, films, sports and music wherever they travel in the 28-member bloc, setting it up for a battle with media groups.

The proposal on “cross-border portability” was presented by the executive European Commission on Wednesday along with a longer-term strategy for making copyrighted works more easily available across the EU, something that is likely to run into stiff opposition from the media industry.

Under the proposal, consumers with subscriptions to online VOD services such as HBO in the Nordics, ProSiebenSat.1MaxDome TV in Germany or Netflix in France, would be able to view content they have paid for when they “temporarily” travel abroad.
