After reading a number of questions, inaccurate answers and “scaremongering” on the internet and social media over the last few days, I hope this will help understand what changes are going to happen when watching UK TV in Spain post Brexit.

UK Streaming Services in Spain post Brexit

Since 2018, UK residents travelling within the EU were able to keep watching their UK streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, SkyGo, NOW TV , Britbox UK and ITV Hub without the need for a VPN or Smart DNS service as part of the EUs “Digital Single Market” and “portability” rules.

These rules allowed short stayers like holiday makers, travelling from one EU country to another EU country would be able to access the same streaming video library they’re subscribed to at home without the need to “hide your ip address” or the use of Virtual Private Network (VPN) / Smart DNS (SDNS) services.

Telefónica wants to buy Prisa’s 56% of Canal+ and has offered €600-€700 million, but the editorial group wants substantially more and has decided to pressure the telco by opening the process to other bidders, namely Al Jazeera, News Corporation, Liberty Global and Vivendi.

According to El Economista, the bid’s first period concluded on Friday, but Prisa didn’t get any satisfactory offer. Only Telefónica is close to offering what Prisa wants, as News Corporation has offered €200 million for the pay-TV platform. Al Jazeera and Vivendi’s offers remain under wraps and Liberty Global has recently shown interest in buying ONO, which may drive it to lose interest in Canal+.

Prisa is struggling under a huge debt, although it has managed to refinance the most immediate instalments. According to the newspaper, around €900 million needs to be paid in 2015, which is why the company will be looking forward to selling Canal+ for such an amount. It will get enough cashflow to pay the debt while abandoning the TV business, one of Prisa’s main objectives for the coming years.

The media group has been trying to sell Canal+ for a long time and is said not to be in a hurry to close the deal, prioritising profitability over rapidity. The plight of the pay-TV platform is not helping to solve the situation, as Canal+ keeps dropping subscriptions and has to face the increasing prices of broadcasting football rights.
