Audiovisual Policy Group

DIGITALEUROPE believes that both technology-driven innovation and user demand drive the development of new, personalised, and exciting audiovisual services in Europe. These considerations are key if Europe is to pursue its objectives of creating a vibrant Digital Single Market, promoting and enhancing values (incl. media pluralism, opinion and culture diversity, child protection, and accessibility) and ultimately contributing to jobs and growth.

Our members endeavour to deliver a wide range of services on an equal footing and without discrimination. Our vision is that European users are placed at the centre of the audiovisual and media experience - with full control over the content they access, where, when and how.

To achieve this goal, the Audiovisual Policy Group participates in current EU-level discussions related to Audiovisual Media Services. DIGITALEUROPE has responded to the 2013 Commission Green Paper Preparing for a fully converged audiovisual world and the group is now actively engaged in the on-ongoing REFIT and possible revision of the Audiovisual Media Services Directive (AVMS-D).
