Redefining Pubcasting in an OTT Universe

Monday, February 10, 2020
2:00 PM - 2:45 PM

Balancing growing audience expectations and decreasing budgets, pubcasters are redefining themselves for a new world of SVOD competitors. As the streaming wars heat up, and companies increasingly bank on sure-fire hits and demos, these publicly funded broadcasters have a unique opportunity to reach forgotten audiences, tackle tough and taboo topics, and redefine what it means to balance public service and entertainment. Top buyers from the ABC, BBC, CBC, NRK and PBS weigh in on how they’re shaping their businesses for the future.
