Net­flix black­out for Brits

Daily Record - - NEWS -

BRITS could be blocked from us­ing the likes of Net­flix and Spo­tify in the EU if there is a no-deal Brexit.

On­line games and e-books could also be un­avail­able, say Govern­ment pa­pers re­leased yes­ter­day.

Un­der EU-wide “porta­bil­ity reg­u­la­tion” in place since April, cit­i­zens can ac­cess en­ter­tain­ment ac­counts based in one coun­try while vis­it­ing other mem­ber states.

But a pa­per on copy­right warns this would dis­ap­pear for Brits if there’s no deal.

“This means on­line con­tent ser­vice providers will not be re­quired or able to of­fer cross-bor­der ac­cess to UK con­sumers un­der the EU Reg­u­la­tion,” it said.
