A group of experts charged with investigating the impact of connected TV in France is expected to recommend a wide-ranging revision of media regulation, according to press reports.
The group of five – Marc Tessier, CEO de Video Futur, Philippe Levrier, a former member of media regulator the CSA and Martin Rogard, director-general, France of Dailymotion – are expected to recommend in the next few days that restrictions on the availability of movies on TV in certain windows should be reformed, and will call for a debate on aligning French rules with EC norms, according to Les Echos newspaper.
The report is also expected to call for TV producers to be given more flexibility to exploit their rights on all platforms, and it extend requirements to support domestic production to internet players. The report is also expected to call for a fusion of telecom regulator ARCEP and media regulator the CSA into a single body.
