On 30 June, the Phase 1 blackouts were initiated, and were finished in November; more than five million citizens now receive only digital technology terrestrial television broadcasts. The intermediate phase concluded in January 2010, paving the way for, Digital Terrestrial Television on 3 April of the same year, the end of the process, which means that analogue technology will be abandoned definitively and will allow each private operator to offer a minimum of 4 channels, with the possibility of exploring and offering its television viewers new, high definition interactive services. The ANTENA 3 GROUP actively contributes to the generation of a strong Spanish film industry. In 2009, the ANTENA 3 GROUP invested 50,902,622 Euros for the production and broadcasting rights of Spanish and European audiovisual productions, 19% more than last year. The regulators and TV stations have not yet reached an agreement on the obligatory investment quotas which requires television station operators to earmark 5% of annual income to financing full-length features and made for TV movies. ANTENA 3 TELEVISION and its UTECA member partners seek to stamp out this quota; in addition to being the only such quota in the Spanish economy, it has also proven to be inefficient in bolstering the Spanish film industry. According to the operators however, it is the television stations own activity, without the tax incentives, which has created a robust audiovisual industry. In December 2009, at the request of UTECA, the Supreme Court questioned the constitutionality of the measure and submit- Support for Spanish cinema ted it to the Constitutional Court for review. At the time of writing this Annual report, the General Audiovisual Communications Law is being processed in Congress, which after eight years of failed drafts, would unify the various regulations in the sector, establishing a single framework that would lend more stability and judicial security to audiovisual service providers. This proposed Law calls for a stricter financing requirements for public television, to which 6% of their income should be allocated to. It calls for the Private sector – which the Proposed Law considers electronic communications service providers which include television among their services offered and cable and satellite platforms – to designate 3% of its income to any type of film product, and the remaining 2% to the financing of made for TV movies and series and documentaries. After almost 20 years of state financed public television- a mix of financing-public aid and advertising revenues-, in 2009, the Law regarding the Financing of the RTVE Corporation was approved, prohibiting the corporation from generating income from advertising broadcasts. The law came into force in September 2009, although advertising on RTVE will not disappear completely until January 2010. Television channel Financing ANTENA 3 TELEVISION has always believed that public television should obtain its credibility and strength through its public service and not through advertising sales, creating television for the citizens and not advertisers. This is why it applauds the decision to eliminate advertising activity on RTVE, and is confident the initiative will soon be undertaken by the regional governments as well. The ANTENA 3 GROUP is working to obtain regulatory reforms that will demand transparency from the collective entities managing intellectual property rights, establishing objective, equal and adequate criteria in the prices these entities may demand for the rights they manage. Reforms relative to the manage- In 2009, a historic milestone was reached; for the first time, the Supreme Court decided it was not legitimate to demand that television stations pay a percentage of their revenues to management entities, and that the amount for the use of the intel- ment of intellectual property lectual property rights must be fixed considering the specific repertoire that each entity manages, with attention to the real use that each television station makes of said repertoire, as well as the contribution that this would suppose with respect to rights the income obtained from the station. With this sentence, the Supreme Court has defended the position of the ANTENA 3 GROUP and its partners at UTECA, who are confident the initial work being undertaken at the House of Representatives for the Reform of the Intellectual Property Law will continue in the path set out by the High Court. For its part, ONDA CERO is a member of the Spanish Association of Commercial Radiobroadcasters (AERC), and is member of its Executive Board, through which it actively participates in the elaboration of laws and regulations governing the audiovisual and advertising sectors, with a special interest in the management of the radio electrical spectrum and intellectual property, among other areas. It is also a member of the Catalan Radio Association (ACR), and has a lot of activity and influence on radio broadcasting in Catalonia.

Therefore, the company has made more progress towards a “paperless” Efficient use of raw materials and waste management office model. In 2009, the ANTENA 3 GROUP has continued to develop the process stated in 2008 of reducing the use of raw materials and the optimal waste management. Through these initiatives, in 2009 paper consumption has fallen 1.18% (0.4 tonnes per year), white envelopes 0.67% and toners and printing cartridges, 2.59%, compared to Initiatives implemented in 2009 to increase efficient use of raw materials and waste management 20008. Furthermore, during the same period, the ANTENA 3 GROUP has managed to reduce • Storage space was reduced 745.32 m2, 51.75% vs. 2008 and 76.75% vs. 2007, which has led to a reduction and optimisation of material stored. the waste generated from batteries by 63%. • Reuse of cardboard boxes for moving, which has led to an economic savings of 70% vs. 2008. • Use of non-contaminating materials and equipment, such as electric elevators instead of those fuelled by diesel. • Separation and collection of materials and industrial waste at the ANTENA 3 installations. • Increase in recycling of input waste encouraging separation at source, thereby reducing waste taken to the dump. We should point out that the increase in the tonnes of paper and cardboard recycled and valued in 2009.
