We serve European and international journalists with our press releases. We regularly publish facts, figures and analysis from our latest publications or conference presentations in the form of press releases targeting the journalist community.

All press releases are available in English, French and German. We also offer free copies of our publications to bona fide journalists who quote our work in their articles or write about our publications.

Our experts and analysts are often solicited to answer journalists' questions and participate in radio and television programmes. We are very glad to do this inasmuch as the work involved in producing our publications allows.

If you wish to join our unique network of journalists covering the audiovisual industries, or simply wish to receive our press releases for information, send an email to the Observatory's Press Officer (see details on the right). We look forward to satisfying your information needs.

For any press releases prior to 2017, please contact [email protected]

The European Audiovisual Observatory has just updated its annual report on the prominence of European films and programmes on transactional (pay-per-view) VOD. This new analysis of the prominence of films and TV series covers 57 leading transactional Video-On-Demand (TVOD) services from 7 European countries.

A few key findings from this report

1. The top 10 promoted films capture about 40% of all promotion

The report confirms that TVOD, in line with its business model, promotes a limited amount of content, primarily recent films.
On average, a TVOD service advertises 1 to 2% of its catalogue on its home page; moreover, the top 10 promoted films capture about 40% of all promotion.

Most films promoted are theatrical films, released in the TVOD service’s country. They are complemented by direct to video films.

2. The top 10 promoted European films capture around  6% of all promotion activities for European films

Our report also highlights that, as far as European worls are concerned, there is no significant gap between the share of European works in the TVOD services’ catalogues and their share of promotion. But their promotion is even more concentrated around a limited number of titles.
