Established in June 2013, and operating since autumn of the same year, the Association was founded by Italy’s main national TV operators (Rai, Mediaset, La 7, Telecom Italia Media) and FRT, the Federation of local radio and TV operators. The founders were later joined by other TV operators (Digicast, Discovery Italia, Giglio Group, Prima TV, QVC, RTL 102.5, Rete Blu, Viacom International, Radio Italia, RDS Radio Dimensione Suono and, more recently satellite platform operator Tivù, HSE24 and Elemedia (l’Espresso Group). Major local TV and radio broadcasters are jointly associated in CRTV through the Association of Local Televisions and the Association of Local Radios. Associate members include DNG-Digital News Gathering and satellite operators SES Astra and Eutelsat Italia.
Overall CRTV members represent over 90% of the broadcasting market, with revenue of about 9 billion euros and 26.000 direct employees (up to 80.000 taking into account indirect workforce – CRTV 2013 estimates).
CRTV’s goal is to represent the broadcasting industry as a whole at institutional, legislative and contractual level. CRTV collaborates on a regular basis with all relevant national ministries, institutions and regulators as well as EU and international organisations and institutions with the objective of securing and promoting the development of the radio and TV industries based on fair competition, equal access and respect of users’ rights.
At international level CRTV is a member of the Association of European Radios (AER) and is “sector member” of ITU (International Telecommunication Union).
