The intention of the AVMS Directive, which replaced the Television without Frontiers (TVWF) Directive of 1989, is to bring the EU’s broadcasting rules up to speed with the digital age. TVWF only covered broadcasting whereas AVMS specifically extends regulation to on-demand services, which had never been regulated before. This new law came into force early in 2010, and affects all video- -on-demand service providers that meet the criteria of the Directive.
The industry lunches are intended to facilitate conversations and the exchange of views. We will also be discussing AVMS implementation in the context of the forthcoming Communications Bill.
