One of the features of current society is linked to the ever-increasing demand that both public and private institutions account for their daily activities through the publication of information and data related to them. In this sense, the media are dually obliged, because they are companies and they also work with a public service body, as is the case of information. This chapter takes on the need for conceptually systematizing what we know as accountability, governance and transparency regarding public service television broadcasters, and we will do so by means of a comprehensive bibliographic review. In addition, the main transparency assessment models for these institutions are here highlighted and scored, describing their implementation already fulfilled in various geographical areas, together with their different results but with just a single reading: society—and law—goes far ahead of the institutions’ answer.
