Should EU courts also be allowed to force companies to filter content when they receive phone calls from within the EU?

If you don't want your citizens viewing content that is not allowed to be served in your county then block it yourself, don't expect others to do your dirty work for you. Fortunately, the people in charge are slowly waking up to the idea that that isn't even remotely possible.

Yes and no. HBO also sell content to other broadcasters - like Sky in the UK - which are funded by advertising.

For example, BSkyB have a 275 million GBP deal with HBO over 5 years, and I doubt they're the only ones. Similarly, the BBC supplements their funding by selling their shows.
