How will the new wave of online offerings – from Netflix, YouTube, Hopster and many others – change the UK market over the next five years? Is commercial children’s broadcasting doomed, as children shift online – or will broadcasters adapt? Will the major international children’s channels shift online and go direct-to-consumer? Are the big online players really a great new hope for funding children’s TV content – and what does this mean for producers? Can broadcasters and OTT players work together to grow the market? What will look most different in 2020 – and beyond?

We invite a diverse panel of leading industry executives – from broadcasting and online media – to help us explore the great disruption. Drawing on the latest industry data and research, we’ll paint a compelling picture of the new world of children’s TV in 2020 – and provide some practical tips on how to survive and thrive as a producer in this brave new world.
