Audiovisual services in Europe - Focus on services targeting other countries
Author: Agnes SCHNEEBERGER, European Audiovisual Observatory
This report provides an overview of the European audiovisual media landscape by mapping the origin of linear and on-demand audiovisual services and their circulation. The main focus of the report is on services targeted specifically at other countries, reflecting a trend whereby an increasing number of services are targeting a particular national market from abroad.
Typically, these tend to be delivered by a number of recently-emerged hubs from which broadcasters and on-demand service providers circulate services which in some cases constitute a significant market power in the respective target countries. The groups managing these services are likely to be large international broadcasting and entertainment corporations based in Europe and the United States.
