ORS comm was founded in early January 2011. All commercial transactions are handled by ORS comm.
The 2010 amendment of the ORF Law provides for a clear separation of public service and commercial activities. For this reason, ORS comm GmbH & Co KG (a 100 percent subsidiary company of ORS) was founded in early January 2011.
Public service business with ORF and commercial business closely connected with it remain with the existing ORS. ORS comm pools all commercial activities without a public service context (international activities, satellite business, etc.).
