British holidaymakers will be cut off from access to UK versions of streaming services including Netflix and Amazon Video after Brexit, the European Commission has said.

After years of waiting, from April 1 UK citizens were finally set to benefit from rules allowing "portability" of online streaming services, meaning British holidaymakers could continue to watch UK shows on Netflix, Sky's Now TV and other paid-for streaming apps.

But British citizens will lose out on this benefit post-Brexit.

EU Moves to Make Fairer Euro Transfers, Currency Conversions

Aiming to facilitate trade, ensure transparency and boost competition, the European Commission proposed on Wednesday, legislation that will make cross-border payments in euros cheaper across the EU...

Meanwhile, banks in Britain now and throughout the Brexit transition period will also have to cut cross-border transaction fees to the same level applied for domestic payments, which are usually free.
