The provision of television and radio broadcasting services over the internet is a fast-developing phenomenon in the European Union. The European Commission adopted a proposal for a regulation to promote the cross-border provision of online services ancillary to broadcasts and facilitate digital retransmissions of TV and radio programmes originating in other Member States in September 2016. The European Parliament and the Council have each voted, separately, to amend the proposal to a large extent. The co-legislators are discussing, inter alia, what type of online services should fall under the scope of the regulation and whether the mechanisms facilitating satellite and cable operators’ broadcasting cross-border in the EU should be extended to new service providers such as internet protocol television (IPTV) and over-the-top (OTT) providers.
