The directive agreed on today is based on the Satellite and Cable Directive, allowing a large number of TV channels being available in the other Member States than the Member State of origin. Such an agreement is beneficial to Europeans living in another Member State.
Vice-President for the Digital Single Market Andrus Ansip said: “I am very pleased we reached yet another agreement that brings us closer to a functioning Digital Single Market. The updated broadcasting rules are a big part of the puzzle. This regulation has the potential to unlock a large amount of broadcast content across borders, benefitting the 41% of Europeans who watch TV online but also the 20 million EU citizens who were born in a different EU country from the one they live in”.
Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society Mariya Gabriel said: “Today’ agreement is a double win for European’s cultural diversity: citizens will have better access to Europe’s rich content, and creators and authors will be adequately rewarded for their content.”
