Public media has never been so important, nor under so much threat. Constrained by past realities as governments work to update public broadcasting policy to level the playing field, what are their key strategies for pubcasters to not only survive but creatively and commercially thrive in today’s media universe? Join us as we regather executives leading some of the world’s most prominent public broadcasters to update the BANFF 2019 discussion on the utility and role of public service broadcasters in the era of disinformation, and how they aim to fulfill their mandate to provide cultural and educational fare across platforms.

Kate moderates the RTS Lockdown Viewing event June 4 2020

With millions of us confined to our homes during lockdown, TV viewing has rocketed as audiences turn to both traditional broadcasters and streaming services to keep them informed and entertained.

Viewing figures show that lockdown has had a dramatic impact on what we watch with trends varying significantly by demographic. So, what’s been working and why? And to what extent will new behaviours persist post lockdown? How will broadcasters sustain their resurgence in an age of streaming? And what lessons can be learnt from this unique period in our history to shore up the future of UK broadcasting longer term?

Superpanel- The Distribution Platforms

Kate moderating the Distribution Platforms Panel, Wednesday Oct 10, 2007

TV is no longer simply about the airwaves. Many of the companies formerly known as telephone companies have expanded their portfolio and have spent in some cases billions to upgrade their networks to deliver video as well as their more traditional voice and broadband products. But even as these IPTV networks are starting to grow, other companies are using the open internet to deliver programmes and entire streamed channels to audiences. Joost and Babelgum -and many others- are vying to be the new delivery platforms for video content. What are the differences in their delivery and interactive capabilities and techniques for programmers and how do the business models compare?

Superpanel: Distribution Strategies for Major Media Owners

Kate moderating the Distribution Strategies Panel

Click here to view a video stream of the panel.

Exclusive or not? Where do you license your content in the fast-changing broadband and IPTV delivery environment? Studios and programmers are trying out a host of different strategies from launching their own platforms (see NBC Universal and Fox) or teaming up with established sites form MySpace to YouTube to licensing to telco TV operators like Tiscali, BT Vision and Orange. What have been the results so far? What are customers using - downloads or streamed services? What revenue sharing seals are programmers and network operators willing to strike? Is ad-supported content the way to go for content? As exploitation windows get closer, how does this effect the money to be made from telco TV and platforms like Joost and Babelgum?
