Spain's RTVE looking to charge operators for catchup content

Wednesday 5 July 2017 | 15:13 CET | News
Spain's state broadcaster RTVE is negotiating compensation for the unlimited access to its movies and TV series currently enjoyed by operators such as Telefonica, Orange and Vodafone, reports business daily El Economista. Although under the existing rules operators are allowed to distribute RTVE content for free on their platforms at the same time as on public channels, they are also including the broadcaster's programming portfolio on their 7-day catchup and record services without paying compensation, said the report.
