Global Media: Dealing with EU travel portability and the Digital Single Market
, 2018 is a very important date for video service operators with customers in the European Union. On that date, EU citizens get a new content portability viewing rights that affect every pay streaming service they use.

- All digital providers who offer paid online content services
- Optionally, digital providers who offer free online content services
- Digital content rights holders
