Gibraltar’s television market led the year with industry contention after state-owned Gibtelecom filed a lawsuit against competitor GibFibre over claims that it is illegally providing English-language TV services without a licence.

Gibtelecom applied for an injunction to stop access to TV channels including BBC 1, ITV and Sky through GibSat. Lawyers say this is the latest development in protracted disputes that started almost 10 years ago.

Gibraltar is described as a high-profile news location and a creative hub for drama, sitcoms and films. The fair competition trail could result in the territory losing access to British TV.

In other development, digital Gibraltar was home to a 94.4 per cent internet penetration rate at the start of 2024, with the rate of social media users amounting to almost 63 per cent of the population.

Esports also became a notable topic over the past year after Gibraltar officially recognised the sector as a sport at the start of last year. The territory was subsequently accepted into the European Esports Federation.
