For a few years it has been done much more noticeable the boom of streaming content services on demand. Whether it’s Netflix, Spotify or Deezer, the truth is that we increasingly prefer to see what we want and when we want in exchange for paying a monthly subscription.
And, if you are one of these people, you can be in luck, since, from today, you will be able to use any service that you have hired in your country in the European Union, Let’s see all the details!
If you live in a member country of the European Union and have contracted a payment service in that country, you can be in luck, since today an agreement promoted by the European Union has entered into force that will allow you to continue to enjoy any of these services in the member countries of the European Union.
This comes under a signed agreement to eliminate barriers between countries, which make it difficult for users to enjoy these services. But, as we can read in ABC, to avoid abuses the providers will verify the state in which the user really lives and, if he can not prove in which country he lives, the company may interrupt the use of his services.
Services open to the general public such as those of the televisions through their website they can also use this agreement while they verify the country of residence of the person in question, This can be done through a receipt, a bank account or a credit card.
This agreement is designed for people who visit other countries temporarily, and not for foreign residents in other countries, hence we find these control mechanisms so restrictive. Anyway, we think it is excellent that, from yesterday, April 1, users of the European Union can continue to use Spotify, Netflix, HBO or any payment service when they leave, for holidays or work, to other countries of the European Union, they may use the services they have contracted in their respective countries of residence.
What do you think about this new advantage for the residents of the European Union?
