Under current licensing agreements, if you try to access Netflix while abroad you'll see region-specific content rather than what you're used to at home. But that could soon change.

That's because the European Union is planning on letting subscribers to streaming services access their own libraries while roaming on the continent.

If the plans go ahead, customers of Amazon Prime Video, Netflix and Sky's Now TV would be able to access everything abroad that they can at home.

The deal is likely to be ratified on May 26th. If approved, it will become law next year. Which is good news for anyone wanting to spend their summer holiday bingeing through the latest series of 'House of Cards'.

Though at the moment, it's unclear whether us Brits will be able to benefit. The UK will hold a referendum on June 23rd to decide whether the country stays in the EU. If we go, we might be stuck with Spanish soap operas by the pool.
