SatCab Directive review - not a viable solution for achieving a DSM

Press Releases, published on 19 April 2016 Download document

The Commission is currently reviewing the 1993 Satellite and Cable Directive for potential application to online with regards to which ACT supports the Commission’s DSM objectives. However, we do not believe that extending the principles of the Directive to the online environment would result in more cross-border availability of AV content. To the contrary, a revision may have negative consequences on European production, financing and distribution, in particular putting European broadcasters at a disadvantage and creating an imbalanced digital ecosystem.
