How do SR, SVT and UR affect the media market?
The Swedish Broadcasting Authority has been instructed to analyse how Sveriges Radio AB (SR), Sveriges Television AB (SVT) and Sveriges Utbildningsradio (UR) affect the media market. Areas to be covered include the competitive situation and the development of the market in general.
"One important task of media policy is to create favourable conditions for commercial and non-profit actors in the media market. There is therefore a need to examine how public service activities affect competition in the media market," says Minister for Culture Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth.
