As international scripted TV series are increasingly moving out of Free TV and behind a subscription wall we will take a look at what is really going on with offers to consumers. By using actual data and insight of what has happened with the TV series, and how it is being offered to consumers, we will review some of the key themes of the market. Using a highly visual presentation we will take a fast-paced look at what is going on and how the market is changing, including such topics as:

  • How are TV shows being offered to consumers (the shifting balance of where international tv series are available)
  • How are channels responding to consumer demands (e.g. experimenting with new scheduling and windowing models etc)
