Consumer protectors criticise maintenance of geo-blocking in Europe

The Federation of German Consumer Organisations (vzbv) has criticised the fact that freely accessible audiovisual online content such as TV live streams or catch-up services can continue to be restricted to domestic viewers by geo-blocking, while consumers will be able to use their subscription to paid-for services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video or Sky Go in other EU countries from April 1, 2018.
