Some noteworthy differences in youth TV programming across the major European nations

The January-June 2018 issue of the Kids TV Report by Eurodata TV Worldwide reviews the latest trends in youth TV programming and analyses the latest children’s hits in France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom. Kids daily viewing times and use of catch-up TV significantly differ between countries ; local production is high in the UK and lower in other European countries. In terms of programmes, 2018 offers less hits thus greater diversity than previous years.

Autumn 2018 - Young adults are still fans of TV content, which they watch in their own way

Not all that long ago, TV viewers used to spend all their “TV time” watching live programmes: it was all on their TV set and they couldn’t use any other screens or choose their viewing method. “In 2018, it is particularly young adults’ live consumption on a TV set that is decreasing, while the consumption of TV programmes via catch-up or on internet screens is increasing, representing a bigger share of the total viewing," said Frédéric Vaulpré, Eurodata TV Worldwide Vice-President.

Disney announces details on upcoming streaming service

Disney has chosen Disney+ as the name of its highly anticipated streaming service, which is set to come out in late 2019. The name echoes the nomenclature of Disney’s existing ESPN+ streaming service.

The service already has two new exclusive series from Star Wars and Marvel lined up to populate two of a planned five content channels on Disney+. The others will be Disney, Pixar and National Geographic (which Disney is acquiring from 21st Century Fox).

The decision to focus on specific brands is in high contrast to the high-volume strategies of Amazon Prime and Netflix, but Disney CEO Bob Iger said that differentiation will help it garner loyalty.

Original shows will include such fare as a series with perennial antihero Loki, brother of Thor; and a Star Wars show with Diego Luna as Cassian Andor.

Fox to offload $15bn Sky stake

21st Century Fox has confirmed it will offload its 39% stake in European satcaster Sky, after losing out to US giant Comcast in an auction for ownership of the business at the weekend.

Rupert Murdoch’s Fox has long wanted to buy the 61% of Sky that it doesn’t already own, but after an earlier bid was scuppered by a phone hacking scandal engulfing his newspapers, his latest attempt failed after Comcast’s US$39bn bid on Saturday.

Sky has recommended its shareholders accept Comcast’s offer of £17.28 a share for control of London-based Sky, which beat the £15.67 a share offer by Fox.

21st Century Fox has now issued a statement confirming that it intends to sell its 39% holding to Comcast for the agreed price, which will bring in £11.6bn (US$15bn). The company is itself in the midst of selling many of its assets to The Walt Disney Company, and it confirmed that Disney had consented to the decision.

Sky, Channel 4 Strike First-of-Its-Kind Content-Sharing Deal

British pay-TV heavyweight Sky and its free-to-air counterpart Channel 4 have struck a first-of-its-kind content-sharing deal, with an agreement that covers premium sports and drama. Pubcaster Channel 4 will show Sky’s Tim Roth revenge drama “Tin Star” and Formula 1 racing coverage. In return, Sky will show series from Channel 4’s international drama service Walter Presents, as well as the new season of the free-TV broadcaster’s police drama “No Offence.”

The unusual hookup comes as new kinds of partnership and pacts are being forged in response to the reshaping of the TV landscape by U.S. streamers. Pay-TV firms in Britain have already started bundling Netflix and Amazon, and free-TV broadcasters have been co-producing with the FAANG companies. But the Sky-Channel 4 deal is the first time a pay-TV firm and pubcaster have shared high-end drama and premium sports in this way.
