Brexit and broadcasting

What does Brexit mean for international broadcasters in the UK?

As Brexit approaches, it becomes highly urgent for international TV channels operating under a UK license to make up their mind: stay in the UK or apply for a broadcasting license in one of the “remaining” EU countries. The so-called country of origin principle of the Audiovisual Media Services Directive of the EU means that a broadcaster needs a single license in one EU country to be allowed to broadcast in the entire EU. After Brexit – especially in a no-deal scenario – a TV channel with only a UK license will result in a black screen throughout the EU. This could potentially affect a large number of international commercial broadcasters now based in the UK.
