There are no approachs to carry out if the television service is already authorized in DVB or if the radio is already authorized in FM. Their authorization into hertzian indeed enables them to be taken again on Internet.

Convention or the declaration does not specify the network on which the service is available. It thus allows the diffusion or the distribution of the service on all the electronic communication networks, whatever the latter, except for the DVB and of the radio in FM for which the diffusion of a service requires the attribution of an authorization after call to the candidatures. Thus, a TV channel or a radio which, initially, would be only accessible on Internet could then be taken again on a cable network or the satellite without approach preliminary near the Council.

Apart from the television services or radio, the other services can be put at the disposal of public without preliminary formality.

In particular, a website can be exploited without any approach near the Superior council of the audio-visual one.

In the same way, the services of audio-visual mediums to the request can be proposed with the public without preliminary formality. However, these services fall within the competence of the Council and are subjected to a certain number of obligations.
