Global Conference 2013

This past year has seen a dramatic shift in global media and entertainment As the supply of mobile content continues to develop, how that content is financed and distributed keeps changing. That's reflected in Disney's acquisition of Marvel and Lucasfilm, Comcast's completion of its NBC Universal acquisition and the ongoing evolution in the relationships with such providers as Netflix, Apple and, not only in the U.S. but in growing international markets. As revenue from traditional models declines, are artificial limits on broadband speeds and content delivery inhibiting the uptake of paid digital distribution? Do international markets compensate for potential declines in U.S. television revenue? As media companies deal with such issues as changing platforms, declining movie revenue and globalization, what does the industry's past tell us about the big picture for media in the future?
