AVMS: Revise it or Renew it?

The European Broadcasting Union´s Eurovision website has published a short review of the main presentations from Connected TV: Beyond the AVMS Directive, a conference held in Cyprus at the end of October. You can read their review at this link. According to the report, ¨ultimately delegates concluded that regulations should meet consumer habits and expectations: portable and seamless content on all devices.¨ But there is a long way to go on that front, and no clear road map emerged. Many at the event also privately commented that nothing would move forward with regard to a review of AVMS prior to 2014, when the Commission will be re-elected. The Green Paper on Connected TV, now expected at the beginning of 2013, according to the video speech given by Neelie Kroes, is at least expected to advance the debate in the meantime.
