In the news
As executives from the global content business gear up to travel to Cannes for MIPCOM next week, Reed MIDEM provided an update on plans for a “reimagined” MIPTV. Reed MIDEM is upping the number of hosted buyers for MIPTV 2020 by 50 percent and has announced a slate of distributors that have confirmed their plans to participate in the event, set for March 30 to April 2. MIPCOM, meanwhile, is set to feature 60-plus new exhibitors and a series of keynote addresses and panels under the theme “The Streaming Offensive,” Reed MIDEM’s Laurine Garaude tells World Screen. In streaming platform news, NBCUniversal has tapped Matt Strauss to lead Peacock, with Bonnie Hammer moving to oversee the new content studios segment, and Amazon launched its Prime Video Channels offering in Mexico. As content consumption increasingly moves online, television’s share of the total ad pie is forecast to slip to 27 percent by 2021, according to Zenith. Its Advertising Expenditure Forecasts projects that total global adspend will rise by 4.4 percent to reach $640 billion this year, with similar forecasts for 2020 and 2021.
