PSM Remit Principles for the Digital Media Age

The EBU's Legal Focus on PSM Remit Principles for the Digital Media Age deals with the critical question of public service media’s role and the scope of its activities in the global digital media markets, identifying the following non-binding guidance Principles:

  • Broad (covering the full range of content genres to “inform, educate and entertain”);
  • Impartial and Ambitious (setting high standards to ensure PSM provides quality content and impartial information);
  • Future-Proof (enabling innovation and adaptation to market dynamics);
  • Platform Neutral (ensuring content is available everywhere, any time, on all platforms).

Legal Focus publications are part of the EBU's effort to produce practical tools to help Members in a period of rapid change.
