28 percent of the films programmed on European television during the 2015-2016 season were produced in Europe.
According to data recently published by the European Audiovisual Observatory, 28 percent of the films programmed on European television during the 2015-2016 season were produced in Europe. This percentage is equally divided between national and non-national European films, both representing 14 percent of the total number of films shown on television in each EU country. American movies account for 68 percent of the total, while films from other countries in the world account for 4 percent.
Other interesting data refer to the number of times a film is programmed on the same channel in the same year (2.6 times), or the fact that films produced in the last decade account for 53 percent of the total number of plays.
