Politicians go ahead with joint Nordic television channel

May 11, 2010


Deliberations on a new joint Nordic television channel have recently attracted a lot of attention in the Nordic countries. The Nordic Council's Culture and Education Committee will now proceed with the idea of a new television channel for Nordic viewers.


MPs from the committee will now set up a working group to examine the possibilities of establishing a new joint Nordic television programme. At the same time, a number of experts will review the legal, technical and economic challenges.

The Culture and Education Committee has already held a seminar on the future of Nordic public service co-operation during the Nordic Council's meetings in Oslo on 14 April. The Nordic Council cannot make the decision to establish a common television channel itself. It is therefore up to the Nordic governments to agree on a new common television channel inspired by the Franco-German cultural channel Arte.

Ultimately, it will be a joint decision by the governments in each of the Nordic countries on whether to establish a new joint channel. Therefore, MPs are already interested in entering into a close dialogue with industry and with the Nordic public service broadcasters on the possibilities of a close collaboration on the future channel.
