Indeed the enduring and evolving relationship of channels with their audiences was the object of analysis of the jury of The Eutelsat TV awards, chaired by award-winning RAI journalist, Duilio Giammaria. The jury assessed the quality, innovation and creativity of over 100 channels and selected finalists from 12 countries.

This year's roster of finalists in nine categories competing for an award to be announced at a ceremony in Rome on 28 November reflects ventures with over 20 years' experience in broadcasting, including Euronews, Eurosport and MTV, and brand new ventures launched in the last 12 months, such as RTL Kockica, Fokus TV, Turkmax Gurme, Sky Sport moto GP HD. Categories include cinema, children's TV, culture documentaries, fiction/general entertainment, lifestyle, music, news/information and sport.
