About the event:

On the bus, at the gym, in the park – we increasingly consume media contents whenever and wherever it suits our schedules. The latest U.S. series, a new French movie or the BBC news play on our smartphones, tablets or internet-enabled TVs.

It’s high time to update European legislation on audiovisual media, primarily laid out in a Directive dating back to 2010, to meet this new environment.  A Commission proposal from May this year seeks an adjustment and is currently debated in the European Parliament.

Are the proposals fit for purpose?

Which legislative changes do we need to create a level playing field for public and private, traditional and new providers? Can new technologies emerge under the revised rules put forward by the Commission? Will the revised Directive enable further completion of the Digital Single Market?

Join us for a forward-looking breakfast discussion!
