FourFourSeconds ago, we reported that TV industry group TV Licensing had confirmed that it was looking into the possibility of putting an entertainment show on its channel, which could result in a UK-only service.
The move is part of the TV industry’s efforts to become a more integrated and integrated network.TV Licensing’s Vice President of Licensing, Tom Fenton, told us that the company is currently “evaluating” the possibility, and that if the plan works, it will be a “natural fit”.
He added:”We are looking at the possibilities that could be brought forward for our UK service to bring content from the UK to our platform, and we have to consider how that will be integrated.”
The idea of having an international network, with an international reach, has been discussed in our industry, and it has the potential to be very beneficial to the industry overall.”TV Licencing has recently launched a UK subscription service, with plans to add more content to that service.
Fenton told us:”In the US, it’s quite common for TV networks to offer content to local cable networks, and to other providers, and the content is usually from a local content source.”
In other countries, it is more common for content from a third party, and a third-party is generally local content.”
We want to make sure that we offer a broad range of content, and make sure it is delivered from the most credible sources.
However, he added that the UK had “some challenges”, such as the lack of a UK pay TV market. “
We think the UK is the right market to provide an international content service, because of the level of local content, the fact that it’s a market that is predominantly populated by people who are connected by broadband, and then the fact there’s a very strong cultural identity and culture that people have.”
However, he added that the UK had “some challenges”, such as the lack of a UK pay TV market.
The UK is also a region with an abundance of competition, so that might make it more difficult to develop an international service.
