Westminster Media Forum

The UK TV sector in the global market: competition, partnerships and opportunities

Morning, Tuesday, 15th January 2019

Central London


This timely seminar will be an opportunity to discuss the potential impact of the ongoing disruption in the global TV market on the UK sector, the implications of increased consolidation, and the expansion of investment in content and distribution by newer players.

Planned sessions consider what more might be done to address the challenges facing UK broadcasters and content commissioners in attracting and retaining audiences, as well as in developing and supporting their business models.

Delegates will also consider what is required from policy and business practice to secure the position of the UK as an exporter of content and services, and as a centre for production, as well as assessing opportunities for the TV production sector in the UK afforded by the global increase in content output - focusing on investment in facilities and skills, and the demand for distinctive content.
