Funding of Public Service Media

This report gives an accurate and comprehensive picture of the financial situation of our Members in 2019 and 2020.

You'll learn about the pre-crisis position of public service media (PSM) in 2019 and about some developments related to the potential impact of the COVID-19 crisis on PSM funding. This research will give you a special perspective on how 66 PSM organizations in 49 different markets are doing in terms of funding. You'll find a unique set of data and an in-depth analysis, with today's main challenges and recent changes to PSM funding mechanisms.

If you'd like to explore some figures on EBU Members’ operating revenues, staff costs and programming expenditures with historical series, an updated version of the Income and Expenditure Dataset 2020 (which is part of the Media Intelligence Survey 2020 publication) is available.
