Josh Berger, President & Managing Director, Warner Bros UK, Ireland & Spain, has warned that a number of channels currently located and licensed in the UK may have to relocate to Europe following the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union.
“Many licensed services may have to move to Europe to continue to broadcast if a suitable licensing framework can’t be agreed,” he told delegates at the RTS London Conference.
Former Labour Cabinet Minister and European Commissioner suggested that the audiovisual sector needed to raise its level in the ‘pecking order’ to ensure its interests were best reflected in future negotiations.
