Public Service Media in the Nordic Countries offers a wealth of information on the Nordic media landscape, with special focus on public service media. The five countries – Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden – have similar media systems and a long tradition of public service broadcasting, including strong support for it and public service models that have developed characterized by the fact that the countries are small and have relatively small populations. This publication marks the start of Nordicom’s project, Nordic Public Service Media Map, which is a part of the globalisation strategy of the Nordic Council of Ministers, and the statistics presented here provide a framework for the series’ forthcoming publications, which will look more into the Nordic public service model. The aim of this volume is to provide an objective and detailed description of the media landscape in each country as well as a coherent overview of the Nordic region. The time span is the past decade in the light of digitalisation trends, with time series starting mostly during the year 2000.
