On 13 December, the Members of the European Parliament adopted their report for the review of the EU geo-blocking rules. In their non-binding report, MEPs argue that the existing Geo-blocking Regulation (adopted in 2018) must be completely implemented to allow customers to purchase online and access services across borders without restriction. Particularly, MEPs are advocating for increased availability and accessibility of online sports events through streaming services across borders, thereby reducing geo-blocking measures. Representatives of the sports right-owners, joining forces with the audiovisual industry alerted MEPs about the negative consequence a ban of geo-blocking would have on the economic sustainability of the sector and the subsequent rising prices for consumers. According to the review clause in the Regulation, the next evaluation report by the European Commission shall be completed before 2025.
