What will the future of TV look like?
As we embark upon the new decade, we bring together a multifarious panel to look at their TV tea leaves, gaze into their crystal balls and read the runes to bring us their visions of the future of TV over the next few years!
Over the past five years, the UK’s TV market has lived through massive change. Niche brands have gone mainstream. Bingeing has become commonplace. Digital ad revenues have surged. Yet traditional TV has remained resilient: advertising remains strong; audiences reach into the tens of millions; TV programmes drive the national conversation. But what of the future?
From the latest tech at CES and IBC, and the promise of 5G to the trends in consumption and services, we’ll explore topics such as IR, AR, VR, XR, tellyporting, the atomisation of the audience, the rise of the silver SVODer, the implications of pay TV for pocket money, and much more.
Come with us as we take a journey through time and space into the future of TV — and get back in time for Newsnight!
