An on-demand video (or, as identified in the law, an on-demand audiovisual media service) is a service that enables the users to choose themselves what programmes they would like to watch and at what time. The programmes are selected from a previously prepared catalogue of programmes.
This service may be offered only upon a previously issued certificate on the Agency’s part. Currently, there are two registered entities in the Register of Providers of On-Demand Audiovisual Media Services. One of these provides the service Max TV Video Library, while the other one provides the service Vip Now on Demand.
The Agency conducts supervision over the fulfillment of obligations relating to cinematographic works (which must not be aired or transmitted beyond the period defined in the contracts concluded with the rights’ holders); minors’ protection, and promotion of and access to the European works (this last obligation is not obligatory but only when viable).
