So what does Brexit mean for UK TV?
We know that the EU has many Directives on TV and Media that affect UK TV.
For example, will the EU rules on mobile roaming tariffs, to be implemented in 2017, be applicable to UK mobile users? Perhaps commercial pressure will make the providers do this, or it may require law and Ofcom to intervene to bring things in line with EU rules.
Another issue is with the Single Market. Recently the EU suggested that digital services, like Netflix and BBC Iplayer, should be made available to people in other EU countries if they have paid for them in another EU country. This may not be a permanent solution, but will allow people how travel or holiday makers access certain digital services when around Europe. With the UK seemingly going out of the Single Market, then there is no need for say the BBC to make its “domestic” iPlayer available outside the UK. Users will have to use the commercial BBC Store to access certain programmes and content.
