brussels - Dutch with your Netflix subscription can also log in from your vacation address. Now it's impossible, but not soon. Because Parliament supports a European Commission proposal to geoblocking to prohibit it based on location close to services within the EU.

The proposal of the commission is there to put an end to. Customers pay for a service should also elsewhere in Europe have access to the legal content. A service shut abroad because it is cheaper there may not.
