The value of digital commissioning: a new revenue stream or a drain on the marketing budget?
The TV world is colliding with online video and everyone wants a digital audience, but at what cost and from whose budget? At a time when Netflix and Quibi are investing in premium short-form, broadcasters are future proofing for digital, and every month we see higher quality content on ad funded platforms. This panel un-packs how the digital commissioning world is reinventing the wheel and where the money is (or isn't) coming from. Hear from the BBC, ITV and Gunpowder & Sky on the paths they are forging and why.
