Title: Youth and OTT: Youth Programming on RTP Play and RTVE Play
Abstract: Over The Top (OTT) platforms have represented a “revolution” (Clares-Gavilán, Merino Álvarez & Neira, 2019) in the audiovisual media scene that has caused a paradigm shift in the concept of television.
Commercial strategies are moving towards an ecosystem in which the television medium plays its future. In this context, the young audience is decisive for the survival of television. They are a new audience that understands television as a medium for individual and flexible consumption.
On the other hand, European public broadcasters have among their functions “to offer a varied, differentiating and comprehensive program that promotes cultural diversity and takes into account the interests of minorities” (RTP).
This research aims to explore the OTT´s programming for young people on Portuguese (RTP) and Spanish (RTVE) public television, and to analyze it to determine if they include perspectives that promote “constitutional values, especially those of freedom, equality, pluralism and tolerance ”(RTVE).
