CSA enforces Euro quotas

November 23, 2012 10.09 Europe/London By Robert Briel

The French media authority CSA has issued its report on the performance of French premium channels during 2011.

The authority has decided to request more information from Africabox TV, which failed to deliver its production record. The CSA also wants to know the percentage of music programming on the channel.

The channels Beblack, Family TV, NRJ Hits and Trace Urban did not meet the quota of European productions.

Team TV did not meet the quotas for French language and European productions.

Under the French Audiovisual Media Services Directive (SMA), all broadcasters with a French licence need to broadcast a set percentage of French language and European programming.
