Competition in the UK TV market: consumer trends, commercial strategies and policy options

October 24, 2017 @ 08:30 - 13:00

This seminar will assess the future of competition in the UK TV market – with a particular focus on audience and market trends, technology and content discovery, and the way forward for policy.

Sessions will analyse ways in which TV service providers are adapting to consumer and technology trends, including through personalisation, integration of social features, and commissioning premium content, as well as developments in content curation, discoverability and promotion.

Further sessions will assess policy, legal and regulatory issues in light of Brexit, particularly in relation to the AVMSD and the impact of M&A activity within the sector.

Areas for discussion include:

  • The dynamics of the UK TV market – latest consumer and business trends;
  • Looking forward to the next phase of TV’s digital evolution;
  • Commercial strategies – audiences, technology and discoverability;
  • Legal implications of Brexit for TV markets in the UK and the EU;
  • The future shape of the UK’s audio-visual sector and regulatory framework; and
  • Regulatory priorities – competition, consumer protection and sector growth.
