About

What future for TV?
Linear broadcasters tackling the transformations of the industry

The past year has reaffirmed the power of TV channels to unite millions of viewers across Europe. In a changing market landscape, they face growing competition and new challenges: how do they respond to new practices and continue to attract an increasingly demanding audience? Is there a specificity for public sector channels? What strategies can be put in place on a European level to collaborate and strengthen the competitiveness of linear television?
