THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar will consider the future for public service and free-to-air content in the UK in an increasingly complex and competitive media market.
It takes place as the BBC analyses the responses to its consultation on its draft policy for the distribution of UK public services, and will be an opportunity to consider key themes around competition and consolidation emerging from Ofcom’s report on the challenges facing Public Service Broadcasting (PSB) in the digital age.
Planned sessions will examine main issues around prominence and discoverability, the impact of innovation in technology and digital delivery, as well as the way forward for the development of creative and commercial partnerships with other broadcasters, platforms and the wider audio-visual sector.
Delegates will discuss the role of free-to-air in supporting the development and value of original content going forward - 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.
