Digital Agenda: Two thirds of TV programmes seen in Europe are of European origin

EU television broadcasters are devoting an average of 63% of their air time to programmes made in the EU and 35% to independent works created by European producers, according to figures in a report covering the period 2007-2008 published by the European Commission. The Commission publishes a report every two years on monitoring the promotion of European works on TV throughout the EU, one of the aims of the EU's Audiovisual Media Services Directive (AVMS).
