The broadcasting industry has changed dramatically – first with the introduction of cable and satellite, and now by the spread of broadband and the rise of computing power in consumer devices. To help you take advantage of the new opportunities, we will find solutions to the commercial, regulatory, copyright and technical problems you may encounter.

Our wide-ranging experience of new media, broadcasting and telecoms – at national and European levels – means we can actively anticipate and solve problems on your behalf.

Our clients include both conventional, cable and satellite television broadcasters and those who make audiovisual content available on the internet, both linear and on-demand, for download or streaming. They also include those who operate platforms, such as Sky, which aggregate and sell not only their own services but those of others.

Clients include: RT, Sky, NHK, Telenor and British Forces Broadcasting.
