Internet-Connected and Hybrid Television : EBU adopts core Principles

posted on 15 April, 2011   (public)

The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) adopted on 15 April Principles for Internet-Connected and Hybrid Television which, if applied, could deliver lower costs, greater choice and a better viewing experience for consumers. The principles are also meant to allow broadcasters and other content providers to link broadcast and on-demand content such as catch-up TV.

Other issues raised in the policy document include the preservation of a safe viewing environment, including the protection of minors and copyright and data protection.

The EBU called on all stakeholders to support and respect the principles.
