Broadcasting & Media rights in sport. Copyright and related rights, particularly those relating to broadcasting organizations, underpin the relationship between sport and television and other media. Television and media organizations pay huge sums of money for the exclusive right to broadcast top sporting events live.

TV (broadcast and internet)

 

Major companies

Major companies comprise:
  • Broadcasters. The primary broadcasters are the analogue free to air services such as BBC 1 & 2, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5. These companies also have a number of related purely digital channels (for example, BBC3 and ITV2). In the purely digital environment, Sky (or BSkyB) Discovery and UKTV are the leading broadcasters.
  • Platform operators. Sky's satellite delivered platform is the largest in the field but there is also a significant cable provider in Virgin Media and, although primarily a telephony operator, British Telecom (BT) has invested significant sums in establishing its BTVision service which is delivered via its telecommunications network. Digital Terrestrial Television services are provided by Freeview which is a subscription-free service and Freesat which offers a similar subscription free service for some 140 channels via satellite.
  • Producers. In the production sector, BBC and ITV still have major in-house production capabilities but there is a well established independent production sector. Most of the leaders in this field have grown by aggregating content producers, for example, Shine Television, All3media, TV Corporation plc and Zodiac Media Group. The largest independent producers also include Fremantlemedia/Talkback Thames and Endemol.
     

    Recent trends

    Recent trends in the sector concern the increasing convergence between the broadcast and internet sectors. There has been massive growth in the use of internet delivered "catch-up" services such as the BBC's iPlayer. A cross-sector grouping of major media companies, including broadcasters and telecoms companies, have been working to launch YouView, described as a new subscription-free internet-connected TV service for the UK. YouView is intended to work on an open standard basis. However, its launch has been subject to many delays and people are questioning whether it will ever launch commercially.
     
    The UK is moving towards completing digital switchover and by 2012 all analogue television broadcasting will be finished. There is much speculation as to how that will affect ratings and the advertising market for advertising, rather than subscription, supported channels.
     

    Main trade bodies/associations

    The main trade body for television producers is the Producers Alliance for Cinema and Television (PACT). The principal talent groups have their own trade associations:
    • Equity (for actors).
    • Writers Guild of Great Britain.
    • Musicians' Union.
    The Royal Television Society provides a forum for discussion and debate around industry topics.
