Youth programmes broadcast on French public television will be kept free of advertising from January 2018

That’s the Nth evidence that even without a government, a country can go on.

Under-12-y.o. children are considered particularly vulnerable, hence why commercials on channels will be banned 15 minutes before and after airing commercial programs targeted at this age from 1/1/2018.

One of the criticised effect of commercials in France is the rise of obesity and the majority of people is allegedly in favour of this new law. Watch out, this will affect both linear and VOD content.

Fall in revenues estimated in €20m per year.
