Audiovisual Media Services within the Digital Single Market

The European Commission released its proposal for changes to the AVMSD on 25 May. We now expect a period of intense debate and lobbying that will be largely dominated by voices from the larger, longer-standing EU member states. In this first major event organised to respond to the Commission’s proposal, the LSE Media Policy Project has partnered with the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) to bring to Brussels voices less often heard form in debates about this sector from across the EU. Scholars from Hungary, Estonia, Spain, Poland and other countries will introduce new research findings and evidence to broaden the crucial discussion about the future of audiovisual media services in Europe.

The speakers selected will present papers on topics including:

  • New research on the issue of distinguishing between linear and non-linear audiovisual media services,
  • Proposals for scale-based thresholds for the application of the Directive modeled for small states markets,
  • New research on ‘catch-up’ services and the application of the Directive’s content quotas
  • Cross-platform competition and market-balance suggestions for the application of Directive requirements to live-streaming and sharing services
  • New research on media pluralism and diversity from a consumer perspective, and in relation to local, regional and community media
