The White Paper assesses the need for Government measures aimed at commercial public service broadcasting. The Norwegian Ministry of Culture concluded that there is a risk of losing commercial public service media if it is left to the market alone, and the Ministry therefore proposed to temporarely compensate a commercial public service broadcaster. TV 2 AS has signed an agreement for commercial public broadcasting with the Ministry of Culture. TV2 will be compensated for their net costs associated with the agreement. The Government's contribution will be up to NOK 135 million per year for a period of five years.
The measure was implemented in 2019 and has not been evaluated yet. The Norwegian Media Authority oversees TV2's fulfillment of the agreement, and delivers an annual report.
