Funding and advertising

While there’s no one-size-fits-all public service media funding model, PSM income is subject to pressure and scrutiny.

Why does it matter?

To serve the public and prepare for the future public service media (PSM) need funding that’s adequate, stable, and predictable.

Providing trusted news and information, producing quality content and innovative programming, and acquiring rights to must-see sports require public money.

But the return on that investment is huge. Citizens in the EBU area get all of these advantages and more for just €3.26 per person per month, or 11 cents per day.


What are we doing about it?

We believe it’s essential that policy makers and the public understand the benefits of properly funded public service media.

Working with our Members, we lead research into the value of PSM and advocate for frameworks to protect their funding.
