Joint Committee on Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht

General Scheme of the Online Safety and Media Regulation Bill 2020: Discussion (Resumed)

Dr. Mark Carpenter:

People do not pay to boost prominence on the EPG. The most prominent channels are the Irish public service broadcasters both in linear and in catch-up, and obviously they do not pay for this. We have an open and transparent EPG policy, which we publish online, and I am happy to share it with the Deputy if that is helpful.
