    27 April 2016 | 08:30 - 10:00 European Parliament

    How to make portability work?

    On 9 December 2015, the Commission proposed as part of the Digital Single Market Strategy a regulation on content portability of online services. Europe’s commercial broadcasters are at the heart of the issue and are proactively taking part in the public discussion to ensure the right dispositions are put in place to make portability work. As part of this discussion, the ACT organised a policy breakfast in the European Parliament which took a practical approach to the portability discussion and will be of interest to all those interested in how to make the EC proposal applicable in practice. The exchange featured European policy-makers, commercial TV and sports rights representatives.

    Behind the Screens: News Reporting from Ukraine

    Television is an essential and trusted source of national and international news for Europeans. Whenever news breaks, TV correspondents are there on the spot to bring you the story. So how do journalists get the stories to the viewers?

Behind the Screens is a European content season organised by the Association of Commercial Television in Europe together with our member companies. The aim of the season is to move beyond regulatory and policy issues and instead explore the role of television content in the lives of European citizens – whether news, sport or entertainment.

Many interesting events and discussions are being planned: screenings and seminars to showcase some great European TV content, but also to explain how the TV business continues to evolve, how European content is being sold abroad, the role of editorial responsibility in the digital era, and many more…
