VAUNET is the umbrella organisation of audio and audiovisual media companies in Germany and the largest representative body of commercial broadcasting interests in Europe. Its 160 members enrich Germany's media landscape through diversity, creativity and innovation.
Commercial media reach an audience of millions with their offerings. As multi-channel providers and digital players, they have long ceased to be just television and radio in the traditional sense, but also offer a wide range of on-demand, social media and user-generated content, as well as many other attractive interactive services.
In order for the sector’s companies to fulfill their special responsibility for media and opinion diversity in Germany and Europe in the digital world, the regulatory, technological and economic framework conditions must fit. As a trade association, VAUNET supports companies in achieving these goals in pursuing dialog with politicians, supervisory bodies and market partners – both at the national and the European level.
