I guess it's up to them if they don't want to show UK content, although TV is one of the things we are actually pretty good at.

Interesting that they aren't applying the same principles to wind turbines where they are currently complaining about protectionism and the fact that the UK are favouring UK suppliers for new wind turbines.

Should be up to each nation, if the EU keep this up if we ever have another referendum going to be unnecessarily difficult to get a yes result. Almost as if they are glad to see the back of us.

Is this going to be another example of people here being surprised and angry that the EU don’t want us as a partner anymore after we told them we didn’t want to be a partner anymore?

It seems a bit overly protectionist to me, but their choice.

Should it have been up to individual nations when we were a member, or only now? I don’t remember people complaining about this before.

That article says that France is twice as strict on EU origin material, so who’s to say a nation by nation approach would be better for the UK?

This is simply another example of the consequences of our actions. We’d have been aware of this had we had a informed referendum and it’s too late to worry about it now.

Presumably the wind turbines are covered by the Treaty and broadcasting isn't covered?

One is a breach of a Treaty and the other isn't?

France has had restrictions in force for years to protect the French language, they stipulate a minimum percentage of music on radio must be in French language.

Out of interest (I am out of touch on such matters), do you know whether the French have any similar restrictions on Netflix in France? If not, I can't see how regulating radio is going to make any difference in the 21st century. Presumably they don't have any such restrictions on spotify and similar - that would be really odd.

I have been enjoying some French content on Netflix (Call my agent, Lupin, Family Business), so it doesn't simply have to be an agent of American culture, but I see how that's how it must appear to the French. I have some sympathy with them, but it's not a tide that they will be able to turn I'm afraid.

These quotas exist to protect "European culture". Last time I checked, the UK is part of Europe and thus UK culture is European culture.

In other words, this is an unnessesary, petty, retaliatory act from the EU because of Brexit. It has nothing to do with protecting culture.

The UK dared to think we could leave the EU. The EU are going to snub the UK, and force the outcomes of that snub on their member states and voters.

I read something suggesting that the EU is overstepping its powers on this and it may be an illegal ban - something about this being covered by a wider-pan Europe organisation, but I can't remember.

Anyway, its their choice (if the above isn’t true!), but it’s silver lining of being out that this isn’t imposed on us.

This is not anti UK just Audiovisual Media Services Directive (AVMSD) which promotes EU produced content.

https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=uriserv:OJ.C_.2020.223.01.00

Seems the UK are no longer in the EU!

I don't know how this ties in with the European Broadcasting Union ( EBU ) who has many non EU and European members.

Ireland would have a much better chance in the Eurovision if there could be a directive against non EU participation!

It's nothing to do with Netflix or Amazon, I believe they are unaffected but it does affect Europes terrestrial television.

It's all a bit daft really but there you go, if EU wants to tell their people what they can and cannot watch then let them get on with the mind control.

Re your last paragraph.

1/ It doesn't affect us, it really isn't of any consequence to us whatsoever.

2/ So you think the British public should have been informed that if we leave then Line of Duty might not in the future be available in Madrid?

Oops missed this.

Agreed it's not about you and me. It's the UK TV and film industry that loses out. They generated £1.4bn in income from international broadcast rights last year. A chunk of that is now under threat, so that's bound to have a knock on effect on jobs and future investment.

That's 1.5x the size of the whole of the UK's fishing industry, which was made front and centre of the Brexit campaign. I don't think it would have hurt to have known that our creative industries were under threat; it's one of our fastest growing industries.
