The European Audiovisual Observatory has just released its analysis of the promotion of films and TV content by 52 TVOD services in 7 European countries: Belgium, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Netherlands and the United Kingdom. The report looks at the origin of content promoted, the intensity and concentration of promotion, the relative share of films and TV content.

NB:

  • A promotion spot is any space dedicated to the promotion of a content on the home page of a service.
  • The United Kingdom data is included in the report as the reference period is prior to the withdrawal.

Key findings include:

• The promotion efforts of the TVOD services focus massively on recent films (2 years or less) : films produced in 2018 and 2019 represented 47% of all films promoted and 84% of promotional spots.

EU28 titles represent 37% of all titles promoted at least once, but 24% of promotional spots. This reflects that US titles are present in more countries and services and therefore benefit from more promotion.

• The concentration of promotion within EU28 films is significantly higher. And the top 10 EU28 promoted films account on average for 59% of all promotional spots dedicated to EU28 films

Note: These figures are averages per service. The share of the top 10 can be significantly lower at the country level or for all territories as more titles are promoted.

A spotlight on the new Digital Services Act Package A spotlight on the new Digital Services Act Package

In 2019, the European Commission launched the process for the adoption of a comprehensive regulatory package, the so-called Digital Services Act package (DSA).
Two new Regulation proposals were published on 15 December 2020 and aim at modernising the current legal framework for digital services. At a key point in the discussions on this new legislative framework, we are organising a series of webinars dealing with specific topics, where the areas of interplay between the DSA package and existing regulatory instruments may appear more complex in order to help pave the way for a structured exchange among stakeholders, with the Observatory team acting as facilitator for the discussion.

 You can register to take part here.

An initial introductory conference took place on 11 February. Here’s the film of this first conference: The new Digital Services Act Package: a paradigm shift?

See below for the themes of the various webinars.
