At the moment, if you travel abroad and open up the Netflix app you'll notice that its library of films and TV shows is vastly different. That's because the company has cut a variety of agreements with rights holders in different countries, which restrict what content it can make available to its subscribers. So while Netflix might have a deal to offer Doctor Who in the UK, it doesn't necessarily have the rights to offer it in other parts of Europe. It means that if you're abroad and want to continue binge-watching the Time Lord's adventures, you could be out of luck. It's a frustrating reality of the media industry, and why some savvy streamers have turned to proxies and VPNs in order to access Netflix's library in other countries. Now, the UK's Business Secretary Vince Cable wants to cover up these restrictions altogether with a "single online market" for Europe. It would, in theory, make services such as Netflix "portable," so that whenever you travel abroad your library remains the same.
