The Catalan quota in Netflix that ERC demanded to save budgets was already protected

Yesterday, it was known that the executive had agreed the repeal of labor reform, as it appeared between PSOE's commitments and we can form a coalition government. This is not the only announcement that is superimposed on the previously established: the audiovisual production fee in Catalan claimed by ERC to save budgets is perfectly possible without the need for the celebrated agreement last Friday.

Like all narration to the use, the understanding between the Republicans and the Socialists has set forth with an approach, a knot and an outcome, until the IRS of the PSOE to the insistent demand of the Independent Party to provide support for the General Budgets of the State. No emotion has not lacked, such as the one who look for Netflix and other platforms in their content, but this claim "was not necessary" and could only be justified by ERC's intention to "write down as much politician", as they have recognized the World different sources of the audiovisual and government sector.

The spokesman for the Republican Party in Congress, Gabriel Rufián, was vaulled last Friday that there will be "a share of audiovisual production in Catalan", demanded in recent weeks since its political formation as a sine qua non condition so as not to present an amendment to All of the new PGE. In this way, Streaming services such as Netflix, HBO or Amazon Prime Video will be supposedly obliged to include a minimum of productions in co-official languages, commitment that would be framed in the new general audiovisual communication law. The preliminary draft of this rule, from which its definitive wording is not yet known, we will have to refer to the Council of Ministers for approval and subsequent parliamentary processing.

However, it is the text that results, the basis stipulated in the current audiovisual law would be maintained, provided that no article is not explicitly announced, and in the current regulations it is already stipulated that "autonomous communities with their own language may approve additional rules for The audiovisual communication services of their competence sphere in order to promote audiovisual production in their own language ".

That is, to support budgets, ERC did not require the plasmation of a quota in the new law, since Government can already promote Catalan with additional standards. Different interlocutors of the government and platforms on demand thus have transmitted to the Catalan Party, which in any case considered "essential" "protecting the Catalan language under the Spanish State Audiovisual Law," said Marta Vilalta, ERC spokesman.

For its part, Junts Per Catalonia maintains that creating an audiovisual, not already state, is "the best amendment to Spanish law," in the words of his spokesman at Parllament, Mònica Sales. Beyond the ideological andanada, there is certainly Audiovisual Catalan regulations and, in fact, at this time crosses its public consultation phase the preliminary draft to modify the current regional law. In fact, the General Directorate of Linguistic Policy has been "in talks" with Netflix throughout the year, as Govern itself has admitted.

But the debate has moved to the Spanish audiovisual regulations, with an unusual leading role in the new budgets. "It would be worth reviewing if this claim is really supporting linguistic diversity, which could be simply achieved with subtitling, or rather a soterrated attempt to empower the Catalan industry," they launch from one of the affected companies. Not in vain, in Esquerra, the audiovisual sector of Catalonia in 26,000 jobs.
