Households typically use five television broadcasting platforms: analogue cable, digital cable (IPTV), digital terrestrial (paid or free) and satellite using a satellite dish.

Operators providing subscription services such as the businesses offering television subscriptions, are required to develop their own general contracting terms (GTC), which must be communicated to each subscriber before contract conclusion.
