INTRODUCTION
The European network of Creative Europe
Desk MEDIA offices is delighted to publish
this updated edition of the Drama Directory, a
Guide to European TV Drama Commissioning
Editors and Buyers.
The Guide is intended as a tool for TV
producers in search of co-financing or TV sales
for their Drama projects. In particular we hope
it will be of assistance to potential applicants
of the Creative Europe MEDIA Television
Programming support scheme which requires
a minimum of three pre-sales to European
Broadcasters and a clear distribution strategy
for circulation in Europe and beyond.
The production of this Drama Directory is a
true European collaboration with each Creative
Europe Desk providing the information on
the TV Market and the TV Channels in its own
territory.

We would also like to take this opportunity
to thank the participating Broadcasters for
their generosity in providing the information
contained in this Directory and the European
Audiovisual Observatory for allowing us to use
information from the MAVISE database.
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.

BELGIUM
The Belgian audiovisual sector has the particularity of having three distinct audiovisual
markets (French, Flemish and German speaking) each regulated by a different regulatory
authority. For the French Community, the regulator is the Belgian CSA (Conseil Supérieur de
l’Audiovisuel), for the Flemish Community the regulator is the VRM (Vlaamse Regulator voor
de Media) and in the German community the regulator is the Medienrat.
French Community (CFB)
In the French Community (which now refers to itself as the “Federation WallonieBruxelles”), 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 and the
French group AB (AB3, AB4 and AB Shopping). RTBFs market share rose significantly in 2016
(24.3% compared with 21.9% in 2015). Despite a decline, RTL-TVI continues to dominate
the market with a 19.2% daily audience share in 2016 (20.1% in 2012). The second most
important Belgian channel is La Une (RTBF), with a 17% market share. La Deux once again
exceeded the 5% mark (6% compared with 4.8% in 2015). The other Belgian channels have
a share of less than 5% (Club RTL, Plug RTL, Be TV, etc) and a significant number of viewers
still turn to the French channels like TF1 with 15.4% in 2016, France 2 with 5.9% or France 3
with 4.6%.
Flemish Community (VLG)
The main players in the Flemish Community are VRT (public channels: Één, Canvas and
Ketnet), the commercial group Medialaan (channels: VTM, Q2, Vitaya, CAZ, vtmKzoom and
Kadet) and SBS Belgium (channels: VIER, VIJF and ZES plus directing channels: Discovery,
TLC, Play Sports and njam!).

Eén (VRT) continues to dominate the market, although last years it lost marketshare on the
younger targetgroups. Right behind Eén in audience terms is VTM. So on the young target
both channels tend to be equal. VIER follows on the third place. These 3 main channels focus
on (Flemish) entertainment. Eén and VTM have also have a big news department. VRT and
MEDIALAAN have a second channel with a slighty different focus: Canvas that focusses on
information, culture and sports, and Q2 with series, films and Champions League. Together
with the 2 big female skewed and programmed channels, VIJF and Vitaya, all these generalistic
channels take about 84% of the total viewers market. CAZ and ZES, both launched in October
2016, are the only other channels that reach more than 1% market share.
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, f.e. kids
channels (Ketnet, vtmKzoom, Kadet, …) or adventure channels (Discovery, National
Geographic, …).
Both Proximus and Telenet offer VOD catalogues and pay-tv subscriptions. The former
coming with the option of adding a Netflix subscription to the Proximus package. Telenet
and Proximus are by Flemish Media Decree obliged to invest in Flemish tv coproductions.
Aside from that, Telenet over the past years has been increasingly active in purchasing
preview rights for Flemish tv series, shown to Telenet subscribers, prior to free-to-air
broadcasting.

BULGARIA
The most important players in the broadcasting sector in Bulgaria are the following: the bTV Media Group (owned by Central European Media
Enterprises) with 6 channels (including generalist, film, entertainment, HD, and sport channels) had close to 40% of the daily audience share in
2014. The company also owns the Bulgarian version of the SVOD service Voyo. Its main channel bTV is the most watched channel in Bulgaria; the
second significant player in the market is the Nova TV group (part of the Swedish Modern Times Group) with 7 TV channels (including generalist, film,
entertainment, HD, and sport channels) and a total audience share of more than 25% in 2014. Its main channel Nova TV is the second most popular

Cable, satellite and DTT services provide the main distribution platforms in Bulgaria, each reaching about 29% of homes, according to data from IHS.
Blizoo (cable) and Bulsatcom (satellite) are two of the most important operators. Blizoo was taken over by telecommunications operator Mtel in 2015

CZECH REPUBLIC
The Czech TV landscape is dominated by three groups: public service broadcaster Česká Televízia (CT) manages six television
channels. CT accounts for 30% of the audience share in 2014; private broadcasting group Central European Media Enterprises
(CET 21), a subsidiary of Time Warner operating also in Bulgaria, Croatia, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia, owns the leading TV

Modern Times Group (SE) and FTV Prima runs the “Prima” family of TV channels, with a 21% audience share. Other significant
broadcasters include TV Barrandov and Walt Disney.
The Czech Republic is also an important European centre for pan-European channels. A large number of channels are licensed
here which target Central and South-Eastern Europe. The on-demand services of HBO, available throughout Central and SouthEastern Europe, are also registered with the Czech regulatory authorities.
By the end of 2015, 34 pay video-on-demand services were available in the Czech Republic. Among these pay VOD services,
27 were established in the Czech Republic. Major players in the VOD Czech market include national versions of iTunes, Netflix,
HBO competing with the main national subscription-VOD service VOYO, controlled by Central European Media Enterprises.

DENMARK
Denmark is the only European market 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 in 2016 to dominate the market (24.3 % audience
share), followed by DR1 (22.8%). The two main public channels therefore
account for 47.1 % of average daily audiences in 2016. 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 71.7% in 2016. The most popular private channel
is TV3 (Swedish MTG Group), with a daily market share of 4.8%. The other main private
channels are Kanal 5 (Discovery Networks Denmark, 3.8% daily audience share) and
TV3+ (MTG Group), whose daily audience share was 2.7% in 2016. (Audience Data

FINLAND
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 2020.
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 & Fem (since 24th of April 2017), 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 2016 Yle´s market share of daily television viewing was 45%. Yle TV1 was the most popular TV
channel in Finland (market share 28%). The second popular television channel was MTV3, its market
share was 16%. Daily television viewing in Finland in 2016, including children aged four and over,
was 2 h 52 min (2015: 2 h 51 min). (Source: Finnpanel). Pay-TV share in Finland is around 600 000
households. It is around 25 % of all households in 2013. (Source: Ficom)
