TV Content Appeal

The EBU Content Appeal was launched by EBU Television in response to content shortages across the industry following the suspension of most production in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

EBU Active and Associate Member broadcasters contributed programmes rights-cleared for broadcast by other public-service networks. Reflecting the emergency situation, there is no requirement currently to contribute in order to access programmes from the cataloague.

Over the course of two submission and pre-selections rounds, several thousand hours of programmes have been offered, and the most-requested items are made available electronically at no cost to the receiving broadcaster.

  • The catalogue of programmes currently in distribution is available for download here. To request programmes where rights are available in your territory, please email
