Item description for To Have or Not to Have - Must-carry Rules (Iris Special) by European Audiovisual Observatory...
At the heart of the topic dealt with in this latest publication in the IRIS Special series is the media policy commitment to ensuring that all viewers have access to certain core television content of particular public interest.
This policy commitment requires that regulatory bodies take appropriate action to exert influence on the television market. One of the instruments available to regulators for this purpose is the system of must-carry obligations.Crucial questions on must-carry obligations:They were developed for cable television - are they still relevant for the digital era? Do they prevent market failure or do they run the risk of producing market distortion?How should Article 31 of the Universal Service Directive be interpreted?Must-carry or must-offer? Do competition law and access regulations make must-carry obsolete? The European approach (based on programme content) or the American approach (based on the type of broadcaster)?
