The international TV sales business is changing fast. US studios are reining in rights to shows they previously sold in order to power their own upcoming VoD services. Meanwhile, established streamers continue to prefer global licences, leaving fewer rights for ‘traditional’ TV distributors to trade. How do the most nimble businesses turn an apparent narrowing of windows into a growth opportunity?

The C21 Content Trends Survey 2019 explores these hot topics and more to find out how progressive players are turning the rapidly changing marketplace to their advantage. C21 is inviting all those involved in this vital part of the industry to express their views, which will then be collated into a comprehensive report that will publish in the Mipcom edition of C21 International magazine and in the C21Pro 2019 Content Trends Report: Global Distribution. This is your chance to make your voice heard and help shape the debate around the issues that matter.

The deadline for completing the questionnaire is September 27. As an incentive we will offer all contributors a free three-month subscription to C21media.net. We appreciate your time and look forward to reading your responses.
