EAO updates LUMIERE VoD Directory with new data

40 000 European film titles are currently available on 367 VOD services in Europe

A new update of the European Audiovisual Observatory’s LUMIERE VOD, the European film directory provides data on the presence of 41 550 European film titles (produced or minority co-produced by countries of the European Union and Council of Europe) in 367  different VOD catalogues (119 TVOD and 248 SVOD catalogues), representing 472 180 film presences at the end of August 2020. This free access directory is supported by European Commission’s Creative Europe programme.

The Observatory has announced that it will also include television content (series and TV films) in the LUMIERE VOD directory. This data should be freely available in the directory before the end of the year.  A new Observatory report on the content of VOD catalogues in Europe will be released in November.

Data on VOD catalogues are for 46 European countries, representing all 27 Member States of the European Union and an additional 19 Members of the Council of Europe.

LUMIERE VOD is supported by the European Commission’s Creative Europe MEDIA.

The data on the presence of European films in VOD catalogues in Europe for LUMIERE VOD was obtained through our main partnership with JustWatch and participation of Amazon, Chili, EUROVOD, Filmtoro, Netflix and la Pantalla Digital.
