Italy sets strict homegrown TV content quota

Wednesday 4 October 2017 | 11:20 CET | News
All Italian TV channels will be required to air at least one Italian-made film or TV series in a prime time slot (6pm to 11pm) every week under new measures introduced by the government to boost homegrown production talent. The minimum quota rises to twice a week for the public broadcaster Rai, including at least one film, with all channels also required to invest minimum amounts in local content acquisitions and ensure that by 2020 at least 60 percent of the films and TV series aired every week are made in Europe.
