Cable Europe: EU geoblocking decision ‘lets down consumers’

Trade body Cable Europe has levelled criticism at the European Parliament following a vote on the Copyright Regulation taken in the JURI Committee.

The vote effectively excludes some technological platforms such as mobile and the Internet from the scope of the retransmission framework – a move which the industry body describes as “out of step” with both technological developments and consumer behaviour. The vote also excludes functionalities closely connected to the linear retransmission (Catch Up and Restart TV) from this framework.
