Is it possible that it is unavailable in the entire EU?

This is a Funimation license, so CR can't inherit rights Funimation itself doesn't have. Cowboy Bebop is licensed in the UK by Anime Limited.

As this is a "rescue" of an old Bandai Visual license, I wouldn't be surprised if all those titles (i.e, Code Geass, Escaflowne) end up having the same limitations.

At the time Funimation licensed this series, they would have had no interest in licensing for Europe (including the UK & Ireland, where they now stream), as it wasn't part of their market. The only reason some of the series they've brought over include other areas (like most of the Nordic countries & South Africa) is because they were part of block smallest block offered by the licensor that included what Funimation really wanted.

With Bandai Visual's relationship with their parent company, they were probably able to arrange to only license the US & Canada, which was all they wanted at that time.
