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.
