Audiovisual media

With RTL Group, the Grand Duchy can claim a long tradition of broadcasting radio and, more recently, television programmes out of the Grand Duchy towards other markets.

Apart from channels broadcasting in Luxembourgish, many other channels are licensed in the Grand Duchy and broadcast to other European countries.

What is more, SES (formerly Société européenne des satellites), one of the world's major satellite operators, with the brand names Astra, New Skies and Americom, has had its headquarters in the Grand Duchy since its foundation in the early 1980s.

In 1991, the Grand Duchy adopted legislation on electronic media which ensured the opening up of the audiovisual media sector.
