However, the media outlets, which oversee private broadcasting and media content on the Internet as independent bodies, have recently made it easier to do so because of the corona crisis. The demand has risen accordingly.
Around 100 inquiries have been received by the state media outlets and the Berlin office in the past two weeks, as the media outlets announced at the request of the German Press Agency. Most come from church institutions. The chairman of the director’s conference of the state media authorities, Wolfgang Kreissig, said: “In this special situation, we responded to the needs of the church and cultural institutions in particular in this special situation for the pragmatic use of live streaming as compensation for canceled events.”
In this way, many people affected can continue to participate in social life from home. At the same time, the provisional regulation does not fundamentally replace the usual procedure, Kreissig emphasized. The special arrangement is initially only valid until April 19. TEH
