“The revolution will be not be televised”, US artist Gil Scott Heron famously rapped. Today, revolutions are televised-and they happen on social media, in the pockets of people across the world. The media we use to communicate have changed in times of digitalisation, or “digitality”, as this volume calls it, and media law has changed with it. But is this enough to describe European media law as one “of digitality”? Building on a major study of the European communication (dis)order conducted in the framework of the German EU presidency in 2020, this contribution will sketch the status quo, and look ahead to a future where a truly digital European media order is likely to emerge.
