The European Commission proposes to ensure European consumers can access television and film content across borders in a ‘digital single market’.
Senior figures from industry and the Commission will debate whether these proposals will drive further economic growth in Europe’s audio-visual industries and benefit consumers or undermine the basis on which content is funded, damaging a key economic sector and resulting in a reduction in choice and quality of content available.
