To you and others who have experienced similar problems - can I suggest that you write to one of your MEPs with these examples? Ending unjustified geo-blocking (i.e. discrimination against cross border customers within the EU) is an aim of the European Commission's Digital Single Market strategy. See: https://ec.europa.eu/digital-single-market/en/geo-blocking-digital-single-market You can find the names of your MEPs and their contact details, including e-mail addresses, here: http://www.europarl.europa.eu/meps/en/map.html (and a lot of other information about them and what they individually do - or not - on your behalf!). The UK has sadly chosen to exclude itself from these institutions in the future, but you can still influence progress for now, and you may be helping hundreds of millions of your fellow Europeans.
