Netflix, Inc. ( NFLX ) roaming in the European Union is moving forward with new agreements.
The EU is hoping to have these new agreements in place for 2017, which is also when roaming charges for cellphones will be removed while traveling in countries that are part of the group. However, users would still only have access to their Netflix accounts for a limited time while out of their home country, reports Reuters.
A new petition is asking Netflix to allow VPNs, which are used to view content licensed in other countries, access to its service again after it started blocking them earlier this year. It has 45,000 signatures, but it's unlikely that the streaming company will change its stance on the matter.
