The audiovisual sector has undergone significant development and expansion in Spain of late thanks to digitization, the implantation of DTTV, and new television channel start-ups. The sector's growth has also been spurred by the Internet, the information society, and the start of online television on demand, not to mention new multimedia devices designed for these new services. The business model has changed, with the emergence of new rights windows, advances in advertising methods, and the development of new revenue streams.
