Easy authorisation for online media operators
- 17 febbraio 2011
AGCOM, the Italian communications authority, has established a new, simple set of rules for the licensing of linear audiovisual and audio services on the Internet (ie, online television, Internet Protocol television and mobile television) and non-linear audiovisual media services – known as ‘video on demand’ – provided on any e-communications network.
On the basis of Legislative Decree 44/2010, which implements the EU Audiovisual Media Services Directive (2010/13/EC), AGCOM has issued two resolutions. Resolution 606/10/CONS relates to linear services provided on the Internet and other platforms, but excludes terrestrial, satellite and cable television, while Resolution 607/10/CONS relates to video on demand.
