The European Broadcasting Area is defined by the International Telecommunication Union as such:
- The "European Broadcasting Area" is bounded on the west by the western boundary of Region 1, on the east by the meridian 40° East of Greenwich and on the south by the parallel 30° North so as to include the northern part of Saudi Arabia and that part of those countries bordering the Mediterranean within these limits. In addition, Iraq, Jordan and that part of the territory of Syrian Arab Republic, Turkey and Ukraine lying outside the above limits are included in the European Broadcasting Area.
The EBA includes territory outside Europe, and excludes territory that is part of Europe. For example, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia are located partly or wholely in Europe by many definitions, but all are outside of the EBA.
The boundaries of the European Broadcasting Area have their origin in the regions served and linked by telegraphy cables in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The European Broadcasting Area plays a part in the definition of eligibility for active membership in the European Broadcasting Union and thus participation in the Eurovision Song Contest.
