BRITISH holidaymakers travelling to Spain will no longer be able to watch Netflix UK or Amazon Video following Brexit.
The announcement by the European Commission comes following discussions about digital portability rules.
The rules form part of the EU’s Digital Single Market plan, that regulates e-commerce, telecommunications, streaming and online marketing across the European Union, and have posed a unique challenge in Brexit negations.
In a statement the EC said: “As of the withdrawal date, persons residing in the United Kingdom will no longer benefit from their digital content subscriptions when travelling to the EU.”
Currently Netflix UK offers about 2,500 films, while the German and French versions of the offer roughly 1,500 and 1,700 movies, respectively.
