introduction
The network of Creative Europe Desk MEDIA
offices is delighted to publish this updated
2014 edition of the Drama Directory, a Guide
to European TV Drama Commissioning Editors
and Buyers.
We had become aware of an information
gap in this area in our work with clients,
in particular with applicants for the TV
Programming support scheme. We thought
the best way to address this was to make use
of our own network, with each MEDIA office
providing information on TV Channels in its
own territory. It has proved to be a rewarding
collaboration – a true European co-production.
We would like to take this opportunity to
thank the participating Broadcasters for
their generosity in providing the information
contained in this Directory, the European
Audiovisual Observatory for allowing us to
use information from the MAVISE database
and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland for
sponsoring this publication.

This directory is complementary to all market
and database initiatives funded by the MEDIA
Sub-programme with the aim to achieve a
transparent single market for all Audiovisual
programmes in Europe. Examples of other
MEDIA publications include the Training and
Networks guide and the Festival Guide which
can be downloaded from the Creative Europe
website.
We hope the Drama Directory will continue to
be a useful resource for Television Drama
Producers and Broadcasters alike. We welcome
your feedback and suggestions for future
editions.

The three Communities (Flemish, French and German speaking) each have responsibility for audiovisual communication and constitute separate markets, the
common feature being the fact that all three markets have been extensively cabled for three decades and are thus able to receive the channels of neighbouring
countries. They each have their own systems of regulating the audiovisual media and their own public service broadcasters, namely the VRT, the RTBF and the BRF
respectively.
The main players in the Flemish Community are VRT, which operates the public channels Één, Canvas and Ketnet/OP12 , and Medialaan (Vlaamse Media
Maatschappij), which runs the channels VTM, 2BE, Anne, Jim, vtmKzoom and Vitaya. Één (VRT) continues to dominate the market, with a steadily rising daily
audience share of 31% in 2013, a slight decrease compared to 2010 (33%) which reached 33% in 2010 (compared with 28.7% in 2006). Behind Één in audience terms
are the channel VTM (17.4% in 2013) and the second public channel Canvas (children’s programmes during the day sports and cultural programmes in the evening),
followed by Vier, 2BE and Vijf. The rest of the market is split between a number of special interest channels set up in the Flemish Community as well as French and
Dutch language channels.
In the French Community (which now refers to itself as the “Federation Wallonie- Bruxelles”), the main operators of television channels are, apart from RTBF (La Une,
La Deux and La Trois), the RTL group, with its three channels RTL-TVI, Club RTL and Plug RTL that target Belgium but operate under Luxembourg law, and the French
group AB (AB3, AB4 and AB Shopping). RTBFs market share rose slightly in 2012 (20.9% compared with 20.5% in 2011). RTL-TVI continues to dominate the market
with a 20.1% daily audience share in 2012 (19.2% in 2008) and a prime time market share of 28%. The second most important Belgian channel is La Une (RTBF), with
a 14.6% market share. La Deux once again exceeded the 5% mark (5.4% compared with 4.8% in 2011). The other Belgian channels have a combined share of less than
5% (Club RTL, La Deux, AB3, etc) and a significant number of viewers still turn to the French channels, which command about a third of the audience share.
In the German speaking Community, the majority of the population (about 74 000 inhabitants) choose mainly to watch the German television channels.

– a database provided by
the European Audiovisual
Observatory on behalf of the
DG Communication of the
European Commission.

Almost 100% of Belgian households subscribe to pay TV cable TV, mainly due to the extent of the countrys cable network. The country’s primary cable operator,
Telenet (58% of which is under the ownership of Liberty Global since January 2013), claims more than 2.1 million subscribers to its range of channels. The other cable
operators are Brutélé, Tecteo (under the VOO brand) and Numericable/Coditel. The market has undergone significant concentration in the last four years, with the
number of cable operators falling from 19 in 2006 to just 6 in 2012. Since January 2013, the service of AIESH has been replaced by that of Numericable. In July 2011, the
IBPT (the federal telecommunications services authority) adopted a plan to open up the cable network. This states that cable operators will in future have to enable
any interested parties to make a bid to offer television services or high speed Internet services using the networks of the major cable operators.

bulgaria
In Bulgaria the private channel bTV (Central European Media Enterprises) dominates the market and had a daily
audience market share of 36.3% in 2012. BNT, the public broadcaster now has four television channels and a total
audience share of 8.5% (less than half the share it had in 2006). The other major commercial player is the Modern
Times Group with Nova TV (14.9%). (Audience data source: Eurodata TV Worldwide / TNS TV Plan).
Approximately 30% of Bulgarian homes receive cable television with over 600 cable network operators. In 2010,
the private equity company EQT V took over two major operators: Cabletel and Eurocom establishing a new
service called Blizoo. The service had 440 000 subscribers in 2013. In 2010 Telekom Austria (via Mobiltel) bought
into the Bulgarian market (acquiring Megalan and Spectrum).
The Bulgarian satellite market has witnessed several major changes in the last year. Satellite BG closed down in
June 2013 due to the economic crisis. The service had about 50 000 customers and they were recommended by
Satellite BG to move to Vivacom. The main players in the market are Bulsatcom and Vivacom TV (from Telecom
operator Vivacom). A new service was launched in 2013 by Neterra and Telenor called W1. There are also at least
15 IPTV services available, mostly provided by local ISPs, with the most important provided by Mobiltel (Telekom
Austria).

Observatory on behalf of the DG Communication of the European Commission.

Regarding DTT in Bulgaria there were tenders in 2009 and 2010. Two companies were selected: Towercom (Slovak
Republic) to operate two nation-wide DTT multiplexes; and Hannu Pro (Latvia) to operate three nation-wide DTT
multiplexes and the public service multiplex. Complaints against this decision led to the opening of infringement
proceedings by the European Commission regarding the tender process including the restrictions on who could
enter the tender. The two operators have continued the development of DTT services. Switch-off was reported to
have taken place in September 2013. However, such a large number of homes were unprepared and left without
television signals that the switch-off was delayed until November 2013. Low income homes were provided with
vouchers to help in the purchase of DTT equipment.

cyprus
The Cypriot public service broadcaster CYBC continues to play an important role in the market with four channels: RIK1, RIK2, RIK HD
and RIK Sat. These had a combined daily audience share of 17.4% in 2012, a slight increase from the year before. The national private
channels are very strong with the most important being Sigma (18,4%), ANT1 (16.2%) and Mega (14.4%), followed by Plus TV (3,9%).
(Audience data source : Eurodata TV Worldwide / AGB Nielsen Media Research Cyprus ).
Several channels are the Cyprus versions of major Greek commercial channels including ANT1, Mega, and the new sister channel of a
Greek commercial station which was launched in 2011 (Mad Cyprus). Cyprus is also home to a number of Russian language channels
that target Russia and the Baltic states.
Analogue terrestrial signals were switched off on 1 July 2011, after a short transitional period. The network was launched in spring
2010 with the multiplex operated by the public broadcaster and composed of public channels. At the beginning of 2011, the private
consortium Velister Ltd (consisting of six private broadcasters and the distributors Primetel and Cablenet) launched a second
multiplex, dedicated to private channels. In 2013, Velister was broadcasting nine free channels and a pay- DTT package composed of
six channels and produced by LTV (Lumiere TV).
The transition to DTT had a strong impact on the local television landscape in Cyprus. In the absence of a local DTT network, several
local stations have begun to broadcast nationally (Extra TV Limasol and Capital TV) in some cases with a revised programme schedule,
while others have had to cease broadcasting either temporarily or permanently.

SOURCE: MAVISE Database – a database provided by the European
Audiovisual Observatory on behalf of the DG Communication of the
European Commission.

The only satellite package available in Cyprus is Nova, operated by the Greek firm Multichoice Hellas (subsidiary of Forthnet). Only
around 5 000 homes paid for satellite subscription services in 2012. The main cable operator is Cablenet and the company has faced
competition since 2010 with the launch of two cable TV packages by LTV (Lumiere TV): LTV Cable and LTV3Play. Approximately 12%
of homes in Cyprus subscribe to cable packages. Cablenet claimed to have 30 000 subscribers in 2012. Two IPTV services are available:
from Cytavision and Primetel. Almost 20% of homes opted for IPTV services in 2012.

The Danish market is the only one in Europe in which public channels, operated
by the two public broadcasters, DR and TV 2, still attract more than half of average
daily audiences. The TV 2 channel continues to dominate the market (23,3% of daily
audiences in 2013), followed by DR1 (20,3%). The two main public channels therefore
account for 43,6% of average daily audiences in 2013. Because of the creation of various
special-interest channels, the entire public owned channels saw their total audience
grow from 65,6% in 2010 to 66,0% in 2013. The most popular private channel is TV3
(Swedish MTG Group), with a steady daily market share of 4.8%. The other main
private channels are Kanal 5 (SBS Discovery Media, 3.7 daily audience share) and TV3+
(MTG Group), whose daily audience share was 2.7% in 2013. (Audience Data Source:

Finland switched to Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) in 2007 first in Europe. Next transition to highdefinition technology (DVB-T2 & MPEG4) will mean parallel SD and HD-distribution for a long time
and tie up resources. Finland´s national public service broadcasting company YLE´s SD broadcasts
may continue as long as until 2026.
All media companies in Finland are developing increasingly interactive online and mobile services.
Mobile use of media content is increasing. The media sector in Finland is undergoing the global
transformation. Digitisation has changed production, distribution and reception significantly. Global
and Nordic service providers, such as Netflix, HBO Viaplay and Filmnet have entered the fee-based
subscription video service market.
However these changes have not radically altered the balance in the broadcasting market, where the
main players remain Finland´s national public service broadcasting company YLE (YLE TV1, YLE TV2,
YLE Teema and Swedish-language channel YLE FEM), MTV (MTV3, Sub, AVA + pay-channels) owned
by Bonnier Group and the Finnish private media group Nelonen Media (Nelonen, Jim, Liv + paychannels) owned by Sanoma Entertainment Finland Ltd.

SOURCE: MAVISE Database – a database provided by the European Audiovisual
Observatory on behalf of the DG Communication of the European Commission.

In 2013 YLE´s market share of daily television viewing was 41,9 %. YLE TV1 was the most popular TV
channel in Finland (market share 26%). The second popular television channel was MTV3, its market
share was 19 %. Daily television viewing in Finland in 2013, including children aged four and over,
was 3 h 2 min (2012: 2 h 55 min). (Source: Finnpanel). Pay-TV share in Finland is around 600 000
households. It is around 25 % of all households in 2013. (Source: Ficom)
