Commercial Broadcasting in Europe

The “Association of Commercial Television and Video on Demand Services in Europe” represents the interests of leading commercial broadcasters in Europe. Europe has a wonderfully diverse and creative media ecosystem that drives its cultural diversity, media pluralism and leadership in international  markets. The European commercial broadcasting sector is a major success story and is a leading investor and job provider in Europe’s Cultural and Creative Industries.

ACT member companies finance, produce, promote and distribute content and services benefiting millions of Europeans across all platforms. We entertain and inform Europe’s households every day via thousands of channels, VoD and OTT services available across Europe. ACT believes that a healthy and sustainable commercial broadcasting sector has an important role to play in Europe’s economy, society and culture.


World TV Day 2021

Each year on 21 November, ACT – together with egta, EBU, The Global TV Group and UNRIC – celebrates World Television Day. The theme of the 2021 Edition is “Discover it all”. This marks the 25th Anniversary of the UN Declaration. TV companies around the world celebrate World Television Day to remind us of television’s continuous and profound transformation to become TV, a Total Video experience. As part of the annual United Nations initiative, a 30 second-spot will be broadcast and shared online worldwide as an invitation to discover it all!
