EU to postpone H’w’d content quota overhaul

Parliament wants more, Union less

BRUSSELS — The European Union looks set to postpone a radical overhaul of controversial quotas for Hollywood content on Euro TV stations, to appease both sides in the heated debate.

The review of the Television Without Frontiers directive, due at the end of the year, sees Parliament keen to up quotas for EU content while TV execs want quotas relaxed.

Culture chief Viviane Reding said Thursday that the European executive could radically amend the directive, fine-tune it, or opt for a a major overhaul at a later date.

Reding indicated that, “the third option is the one that a majority of players would see as the most pragmatic and effective approach.”
