THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar will consider the future for free-to-air content in the UK in an increasingly complex and competitive media market.
It will be an opportunity to consider key themes emerging from the BBC’s consultation on its new distribution policy for how its services are made available to the public and for third party distribution.
Planned sessions will examine key issues around prominence and discoverability, the impact of innovation in technology and digital delivery, as well as opportunities for the development of creative and commercial partnerships with other broadcasters, platforms and the wider audio-visual sector.
Delegates will discuss the future role of free-to-air in supporting the development and value of original content - looking at the challenges for securing funding, attracting investment, improving diversity on and off screen, and promoting Britain’s cultural identity globally - as well as options for policy and regulation to foster fair competition and help safeguard free-to-air programming.
