The Italian broadcasting duopoly and digital television (VIDEO)

Despite the advent of digital terrestrial technology, Italian television is still dominated by the so called “duopoly” between the public service broadcaster RAI and the privately owned broadcasting giant Mediaset. This situation partially results from the way digital frequencies have been allocated, as denounced by different European institutions.

This video is part of the project “Media in Italy and the digital challenge”, which quattrogatti.info has carried out with the support of the Open Society Foundation. In addition to a preview on the reform of Italy’s state television RAI, previous episodes have focussed on information sources and digital terrestrial television.
