Característica principal de la medida:

The media sector has experienced a fundamental shift because of digitalisation, and the changes have challenged the business models of legacy media. At the same time, the public's access to information and different media has never been greater. The effects of these changes on media diversity are unclear. The Media Diversity Commission will assess these.

Resultados esperados a través de la implementación de la medida:

The Media Diversity Commission's mandate is, in short, to assess the goals of the state on media diversity, and how the Government's economic measures, including the license fee for the public service broadcaster NRK and press subsides, best can be used to promote and uphold media diversity in Norway. The Commission will also examine models that can finance other state contributions to a vital democracy and a diverse media sector, such as public service broadcasting on radio, press subsidies, subsidies for local broadcasting, Sami newspapers, scholarships and the like.
