EU celebrates a year since its Regulation on Cross-border Portability of Online Content Services was Implemented
This regulation aimed to improve the way Europeans access and use their online subscriptions to content when travelling or staying temporarily in another European country. Portability, together with mobile roaming and the removal of unjustified geo-blocking, is a cornerstone of the European Commission’s Digital Single Market policy. So the EU did a survey and discovered that: -68% of 15-24 age group said they knew they can access paid subscriptions for online content services while travelling in other EU countries.
In Europe 41% of those surveyed who use the Internet to access content have a paid subscription to audiovisual content such as films, series or TV (excluding sports) and 26% to music, this is double the percentages for those services surveyed in 2015.
