Webinar: TV regulation in a digital age

The trialogue between the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Member States on the revision of the Audio-Visual Media Services (AVMS) Directive is currently in progress, after several years of work by all parties to update the text of the Directive. This update is timely, given the profound and rapid changes in how TV and other video content is delivered and consumed throughout the EU.

In this context, Analysys Mason and Hogan Lovells are publishing a white paper, “TV regulation in a digital age”, which grapples with the changes at play in TV, and unpacks the fundamental differences between different types of video content on the Internet. It acknowledges the new challenges faced by policy makers and regulators in achieving historical policy objectives in this changing environment, but also cautions against an indiscriminate extension of rules and regulations designed for traditional TV to online video.​

To mark the launch of the white paper, David Abecassis and Michael Kende (Analysys Mason) will join Winston Maxwell (Hogan Lovells) to present its main findings and messages.
