Abstract: The audiovisual sector is complex because it involves the activity of different industries related to content production, telecommunications, media, as well as the Internet and services of the Information Society. The emergence of new technological changes resulting from the digitization process and the convergence of information technologies and telecommunications in connection with the storage, processing and distribution of information are creating new challenges within this sector. The EU Audiovisual Media Services Directive, as the main instrument of the European audiovisual regulatory policy, calls on Member States to reform their legislation on this field with the aim of harmonizing the different regulations regarding audiovisual sector. Until December 2009, Spain has time to transpose into national law the EU Audiovisual Media Services Directive. The regulatory framework of the audiovisual sector in Spain could be defined as huge, disperse and obsolete. However, the Spanish government is going to present in a few days a general regulation on that issue. This article pretends to provide an overview of the major challenges of the Spanish audiovisual sector as a result of the convergence of platforms, services and operators in light of new regulatory changes.
