The television industry has never delivered a better product than today. It is stunning: the user experience, the choice of payment plans (including free and â€˜liteâ€™), the quality and diversity of content, the depth of the back-catalogue for superfans, the never-ending slate of original new programming, the choice of device and platforms and apps and discovery methods. Whether in a free home or a pay home, consumers have never had it so good.Â
But, as we look around from this summit of success, there is a cost-of-living crisis and so less discretionary spend, a limit to the attention anyone can give to Media & Entertainment, and still the need to feed an expanded TV ecosystem and deliver growth to shareholders. So, the challenge is clear enough: keep what we have, and generate growth in an ultra-competitive market against an unfavourable macro-economic background.
