New VOD rules in the EU Digital Single Market

­

The Commission proposes to require VOD services to implement a 20% share of EU works in catalogues, which Netflix already largely meets.
More impactful is the EU’s proposal for OTT SVOD services to provide access to the home service when subscribers travel in the EU, benefitting the UK’s 14 million subscribers.
TV broadcasters, which observe a 50% EU works threshold in their linear programming served on TV platforms and online players, will be able to opt-in to portability.
