We’ve been doing some detailed work on the availability of television and video programming across Europe. What’s clear is the incredible diversity of services across the region and the extent to which it’s still largely territorial, with differences between countries at almost every level. So it’s relatively unusual for Europe to come together as single audience. The annual Eurovision Song Contest this weekend was broadcast to some 50 countries, including the United States and China. With a claimed audience of around 200 million viewers, this sixty-year-old contest is the most viewed programme in Europe and one of the most watched non-sporting events in the world. It’s an astonishing spectacle and a technical triumph, whatever you make of the results.
