We would like to invite you to a special MTM Forum event – exploring the prospects for UK TV industry revenue streams through to 2020, part of a new MTM research programme, TV 2020. The event will focus on the evolution of the UK pay-TV market, exploring scenarios for the future of the market and the key issues facing industry participants.
We are delighted to announce that the panel for the Forum will include: Tom Davidson, Managing Director, A+E Networks UK; Emma Lloyd, Director of Corporate Development, Partnerships and Investments, BSkyB; Alex Green, Director – TV, BT; Jonathan Thompson, CEO, Digital UK; and Katharina Feistauer, VP – Programming, Scripps Networks.
The UK pay-TV market is developing rapidly. Competition for premium content rights is intensifying, quad-play offerings are moving into the market, stimulating intense competition, new devices are proliferating, and OTT services are threatening to disrupt the established industry value chain. For major pay broadcasters, these developments create challenges and opportunities - with limited growth in carriage fees and growing platform demand for rights, metadata and additional content.
How will the competitive environment evolve over the next 5 years, to 2020? How disruptive will OTT be to the 'traditional' pay-TV market? Will the increase of lower-priced offerings stimulate spin-down from top tier packages? How will demand for content evolve - for studio film and TV output, channels and VOD content? Will linear channels be gradually replaced by SVOD offerings? Is the free-to-air DTT platform set to lose share, as pay offerings proliferate? How will the growth of quad play offerings (Sky's MVNO, BT-EE, Vodafone) impact the market? By 2020, who will be the winners - and the losers - in the UK pay-TV market?
