Not too Surprised.....
Europe has been at the forefront of trying to "reign in" the giants.    How successful they become in the end is not yet clear to me though.

Re: European want content
Yeah I agree. I feel like if they want them to include Eurpoean shows/movies why not? It'll only bring in more costumes in the long run.

EU Wants Amazon, Netflix to Include European Content
That is great. European countries should be able to access content. That increases the bottom line for Amazon and Netflix. It seems like a no brainer. They should have implemented that sooner.

Re: EU Wants Amazon, Netflix to Include European Content
Ooh La La, I say. This should have happened a long time ago. Let's give viewers more selection, not to mention it's great for the bottom lines of Amazon and Netflix. European TV has dozens of interesting movies and TV programs I think viewers in this country will take to like a chocolate croissant and a cafe latte.

Just a favorite move, historically
The "local content" rules have been happening ever since the 1950s, beginning with movies and radio music/drama and continuing into television and everything else. They have generally kept smaller, artsier producers in business, to the considerable satisfaction of well-off Europeans who went to the expensive schools and acquired "sophisticated" tastes there, and as long as some channels remained for things that working and middle class people actually wanted to watch, it hasn't resulted in too much resentment (nothing like the attacks on PBS in the US).

The one thing it dependably supplies is a career path for bureaucrats who went to the elite training schools and insisted on studying cultural stuff.

It's a drop of costs in the enormous bucket of profits for the international streaming services.

Yes! I'm so looking forward to new media! I think it's a great idea to incorporate European shows and movies. I can always use another Netflix distraction!

Re: EU Wants Amazon, Netflix to Include European Content
There's likely challenges with the licensing agreements with the content owners.

As there's more of a shift to streaming, hopefully agreements will ease up on some of the geographic restrictions moving forward.

Re: EU Wants Amazon, Netflix to Include European Content
Yeah true. I figured that that's why there not super quick to jump on this. I do hope the licensing agreements can become less strict because I want to see this new content!
