Channels

Asia focus in 2021

In 2021, ABC Australia will continue to provide its audiences with outstanding Australian content and in particular news and current affairs from a trusted source – Australia’s pre-eminent public broadcaster. ABC Australia will also seek to increase its footprint and audience reach by further expanding its network of rebroadcast partners across Asia.”

Content

ABC Australia’ schedule is comprised of approximately 80% news and current affairs programming produced in the ABC’s newsrooms. The remaining 20% provides a rich and satisfying suite of content selected for its appeal and relevance to audiences in Asia and the Pacific. This 20% is comprised of content for which the ABC owns 100% of the rights. ABC Australia invests in content production every year. We also acquire content from the commercial and non-commercial production sector on a non-exclusive basis.

Trends & Outlook 2021

With audiences across Asia required to spend more time at home due to the Covid-19 lockdowns, family co-viewing of screen content has increased and is here to stay. ABC Australia’s multi genre offer is designed to appeal to this co-viewing trend, with high quality drama, entertainment and lifestyle programmes curated with this multi-generational viewership in mind. In 2021, we will continue to see a proliferation of direct-to-consumer platforms with production houses creating their own streaming services. Traditional news media is engaged in a contest for audiences who are increasingly vulnerable to disinformation spread by disreputable forces particularly in the social media space. As the contest for attention intensifies, news media organisations like the ABC will double down on their commitment to public interest journalism which creatively engages, informs and educates audiences and builds trust.

Deutsche Welle (DW) is Germany’s international broadcaster and a trusted source for reliable news and information with content in 30 languages. The flagship channel DW provides analysis and insights to viewers around the globe, reporting on important issues in English 24/7. With continuous news reports, special features and talk shows covering everything from business, science and politics to culture and sports, DW brings people closer to what matters most – made in Germany, made for minds.

Target audience DW’s audience in Asia consists of opinion leaders and educated professionals in government and business that are located primarily in urban areas and are aged between 20 and 49 years old.

Linear television channels in Asia DW broadcasts two linear channels in Asia – DW in English and DW (Deutsch) in German.

DW’s SVOD services are offered through select IPTV partner packages. In China, for example, we have deals with the popular video websites Tudou, Youku and Huanqiu. DW Premium is a new service that provides partners easy access to an exhaustive catalogue of DW content. We have also expanded partnerships with OTT and VOD providers to increase our reach. And the DW for Smart TV app is available on most smart TV models with an easy-to-use interface featuring the best DW programmes.

Content strategy DW is broadcast around the world and we adapt news and programming that corresponds to each region’s prime time and our scheduling reflects this balance of news, features and magazines. When acquiring content, DW places an emphasis on international appeal, but also requires content that has worldwide geographical rights. Since the relaunch of the flagship English channel in 2015, DW has reduced the proportion of re-runs in the schedule.

Local production Asia focus in 2021

One of DW’s strong points in Asia is developing programming that can be adapted for different target regions and partner co-productions are the cornerstone of this. In 2021, we have once again put the focus on the issues that are most relevant in Asia. Like with Unseen, a programme that looks at environmental problems and their innovative solutions. Or with HER – a new series featuring stories about women in Asia, their lives, experiences, perspectives and experiences. DW also has long-running co-productions that have been extremely successful in Asian markets. For example, DW’s science format is adapted to Manthan for Hindi audiences, Onneshon for Bangladesh, Inovator for the Bahasa Indonesian market and Sawal for Pakistan. We also include subtitled programming in Indonesia and Vietnam.

In Asia the streaming game is being played at the highest level, as regional platforms continue to be filled with world-class quality content. Leveraging local talent and engaging with local producers is now, more than ever, an imperative for international media houses aspiring to succeed in the Asian streaming market. With the support of local partners, DW is launching in 2021 formats that speak directly to the issues of Asia’s young and vibrant audiences” Andres Palacios-Degwitz, Head of Sales and Distribution, Asia
