Good News for Netflix & Amazon Users Traveling in Europe

by Adam

As of today, the EU’s digital media portability rules have taken effect.  That means that EU residents can travel across Europe and watch content from their Netflix, Amazon, and other paid services like they are still home.  We are talking normal local language options, menus, and no regional blocks. The regulation requires paid services to perform a check comparing a home address to a user’s current internet address, if both are within the EU, default menus and options will be loaded as normal.

Unfortunately, UK residents will only have a year to enjoy their Netflix and Amazon accounts throughout Europe, as Brexit will trigger an end to their continental access.
