Following last month’s creation of a commission to study the impact and need for regulation of connected TV, French media regulator the CSA has revealed further details of how it is to operate.
Emmanuel Gabla, the head of the commission, has announced the creation of five study groups to study different aspects of the question. Gabla said the commission would meet three or four times a year and would issue regular communiqués on how it was progressing.
A number of interested parties have expressed concern about the impact of connected TV services on the French system of supporting local production, which requires broadcasters and ISPs to subsidise content creation. European Commissioner Neelie Kroes is expected to make an official statement on connected TVs and devices by the end of this year.
The CSA is to organise a colloquium on April 28 at the Quai Branly museum in Paris to discuss matters related to connected TV.
