Eurovision TV Programme Exchange

The Eurovision TV Programme Exchange is a framework allowing member broadcasters to exchange TV content across a range of genres on a reciprocal basis. Launched in 2020 as the ‘EBU Content Appeal’ in response to programming shortages arising from the Covid-19 pandemic, over 30 broadcasters participated in the first edition, serving over 1200h of programme requests across the EBU Membership.

During an open round of the exchange, participating broadcasters submit programme offers via a pre-selection catalogue. Broadcasters then request programmes and the most-requested programmes are made available via an electronical delivery platform, with rights cleared via a collective broadcast license agreement.

There is no cost to participate in this exchange. To participate in the exchange, please complete the preliminary survey before 9 February 2021.
