Westminster Media Forum

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

February 2019

This timely seminar will be an opportunity to discuss the potential impact of major changes in the global TV market on the UK sector, including producers, channels and PSBs.

We expect discussion on the implications of increased consolidation and the expansion of investment in content and distribution by newer players.

It takes place following a speech by the Secretary of State, highlighting the opportunities and successes in the UK industry in the face of increasing, highly-funded international competition and in the context of Ofcom’s consultation on the future of the prominence regime.

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 positon 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.
