Bild told to get broadcast licence for live streaming shows

Thursday 19 April 2018 | 13:09 CET | News
Germany's Media Authorities, the organization responsible for licensing and supervising radio and television broadcasters, have classified three live streams operated by the Bild Zeitung as "broadcasting services subject to licensing". The media regulators said that 'Bild Live', 'Die richtigen Fragen' and 'Bild Sport-Talk with Thorsten Kinhoefer' meet the standards of broadcasting services laid out by the German Commission on Licensing and Supervision (ZAK) because these live streams occur regularly according to a broadcast schedule and are designed to be received in a linear manner.
