President’s Report 2019

International Academy President & CEO Bruce Paisner welcomes the News & Current Affairs Nominees at the Medal Ceremony in New York


he world is changing, more than at any time since televisions were first mass-marketed to the public in the mid-1940s. On the geopolitical front, nations are looking inward, and the alliances which have held the world together in an unsteady peace since WWII are weakening. The whole concept of freedom of the press and of the ability and right of the media to criticize people in power is under relentless attack. It has always been my belief that if you cannot solve the problems you read and hear about every day, you can at least do your part with those things where you do have some influence. And that is the direction the Executive Committee and the staff of the International Academy have taken in the current turmoil. Our primary mission is to award Emmys for excellence in television outside the United States, a task which has grown both more complex and more rewarding by the addition of new streaming services to an already crowded television landscape. To keep up with the demand for quality recognition, the Academy now presents Emmys three times a year. The main event is the Gala in November, where we recognize 11 categories, including Comedy, Drama, Performing Arts and Documentaries. In the spring, at MIPTV in Cannes, France, we present Emmys for excellence in Kids Programming. We have been doing this with MIPTV for the last five years. In mid-September we present Emmys for News and Current Affairs coverage at a joint ceremony in New York with the National Academy. In these times of threat to news media around the world,


this ceremony and the aggressive reporting we honor have taken on new importance. If one part of our mission is recognizing excellence in television, the other is enabling our members to go to places where news is being made, so they have a better understanding of the issues and, hopefully, the solutions. We do this by moving some of our Board Meetings to locations around the world and by staging multi-day Academy Days, which provide a deeper insight into a region and its issues. In recent years we have held Academy Days in Beijing (twice), Hong Kong, Rio (twice), and in Jerusalem, and are now planning for a major event in Istanbul from June 3 to 6, 2020. Our host in Istanbul will be Ay Yapim and its CEO, Kerem Çatay. Our Board Meetings have ranged from Florence to Versailles to Berlin and most recently to London. Last March, the staff of the Academy and our partners at BritishAmerican Business, led by its CEO, Duncan Edwards, organized an outstanding day of in-depth looks at the issues surrounding the Brexit dilemma. Although as of this writing no viable solution is in sight, I believe everyone who attended these meetings has a much better understanding of Brexit and the complex issues surrounding it. A highlight of this meeting was an opening reception at the House of Commons on the night of one of the key parliamentary votes that brought down Theresa May’s government. Our speaker that night was Lord Daniel Finkelstein, a member of the House of Lords and a respected British journalist. The closing dinner was hosted by Discovery INTERNATIONAL EMMY® 2019-2020

Networks International, great friends of the Academy, with a particularly thoughtful welcome by JB Perrette, President of Discovery Networks International. Most recently, in September, we held a board meeting in Los Angeles, with an overview of the television universe from Andrew Wallenstein, co-editor in chief of Variety. To help advance our activities, we receive significant support from several major media companies around the world. I am particularly pleased that several of these partners have supported us for many years. I would particularly like to acknowledge and thank Phoenix Lord Daniel Finkelstein addresses Satellite Television and its chairMembers at the House of Commons man, Liu Changle; Globo, the leading media company in Brazil and the Marinho family; and most recently Ay Yapim of Turkey and its CEO, Kerem Çatay. The Academy has an excellent Executive Committee to set the course and provide guidance for our organization. Most of its members have been on the committee for many years and bring much wisdom and experience to the job. I want to acknowledge Fred Cohen, our Chairman; Simon Sutton, our Secretary; Kevin Beggs, our Treasurer and Co-Chair of our Special Awards Committee; as well as Abbe Raven, Adriana Cisneros, Bruce Tuchman, Rainer Siek, and Armando Nunez, Jr. I particularly want to mention the contributions of Larry Gershman, who passed away this summer. Larry was the Chair of the Emmy Committee and a mainstay of the Academy for the last 30 years.

JB Perrette and Bruce Paisner at the March Board Meeting Closing Cocktail in London


The day-to-day job of running the organization is done by our professional staff, led by the very talented Camille Bidermann Roizen, Senior Vice President and Executive Director. The Academy has an unusually small staff for such a large organization, a tribute to its management and a key reason for its good financial health. The International Academy works closely with the Television Academy in Los Angeles and the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. We participate directly with the National Academy in the News Emmys. I am grateful to our many helpful colleagues at both organizations, especially Frank Scherma and Maury Mcintyre at the Television Academy and Terry O’Reilly and Adam Sharp at the National Academy My professional home for many years has been Hearst Corporation, one of the world’s great media and information companies. I have watched Hearst go through many transformations, always on the cusp of dramatic change. I continue to learn a lot about the business and the world at Hearst, and I am particularly indebted to Hearst’s President and CEO, Steven R. Swartz, for this. Steve is also Chairman of the Associated Press and serves on several important Boards. Steve and his predecessor, Frank A. Bennack, Jr., Executive Vice Chairman, have supported the Academy and my role in it for many years, and I am deeply grateful for their backing and encouragement. By this time next year, the world will surely have changed geopolitically, and our industry will be continuing a transformation with the advent of new streaming services and the arrival of new technologies. In this latter area, I believe the Academy plays an important role in establishing guidelines and rewarding accomplishment, and I expect we will continue to do that to the benefit of our members and the wider industry. 5

Mo Abudu

Mo Abudu is the Founder and CEO of EbonyLife Media, a producer, broadcaster and OTT operator based in Nigeria. hit drama series. Viewers know quality and we have seen rising demand for our series in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Guinea, France, Australia, Ireland and Italy. This affects how we tell our stories, which must have global appeal in order to travel. We’re focused on reaching global audiences from an African perspective. In March 2018, we finalized a three-project production deal with Sony Pictures Television (SPT) to co-develop three new scripted TV projects, with SPT set to distribute internationally. The three-project deal, the first of its kind between SPT and a Nigerian production company, will include a TV series inspired by the Dahomey Warriors. The actionpacked series, inspired by true events that took place in the West African Kingdom of Dahomey, will tell the empowering story of these all-female warriors and show the ultimate strength of women coming together, fighting to protect and honor their people. Ever since our launch in June 2013, our vision has always been to change the narrative about Africa and to tell our stories from our perspective. We have invested in the creation of quality programming and the development of our people and their ideas. It is this ethos that has given us the opportunity to partner with a world-class organization like SPT. Now we have the opportunity to bring the fascinating story of the Dahomey Warriors, and many other such stories, to audiences around the world.

hat does being the 2019 Gala Chair mean to you? As producers, we are in a unique position to share fresh, authentic, and original stories with a global audience. Our content is not limited by language or culture. Viewers want to see stories that reflect their everyday lives—which can be found everywhere. At EbonyLife, we believe in changing the global African narrative. And like many, we connect the world with our stories. As a Nigerian television producer, I am honored to chair the 47th International Emmy Awards and be part of an organization that celebrates extraordinary television producers from all over the globe. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the International Emmys board of directors on the appointment as the 2019 Gala Chair. My big dream was—and still is—to change the narrative about my continent. I’m fueled by the desire to tell a different story and portray another image of Africa—one that is more authentic, positive and progressive. I realized that the most effective way to reach the masses was through media, and this realization gave rise to the vision of creating content for the continent that represented a true reflection of Africa and spoke to the hearts of the people. How important is the international TV market for EbonyLife? As a TV producer, broadcaster and OTT operator, we have seen the demand for drama continue to increase. The draw continues to be our 6

What are the biggest challenges and opportunities for EbonyLife in the coming years? As a continent, Africa has remained creatively silent for centuries. Our stories are seldom told outside of our families and villages and often from the perspective of “someone” looking in. These stories need to be told with authenticity and also produced to the best international standard—which can really only be done in partnership with those that understand how to get the best out of truly great stories. (Nobody does it better than Hollywood for the gloss and Europe for the grit.) But these stories cannot be told effectively without our input. If these stories are told from both perspectives, there is a captive audience on both sides of the Atlantic waiting to be entertained as never before. EbonyLife Media is ideally placed to partner with the best studios in the world to bring high-concept series to global audiences. We have invested hugely in the development of scripted and unscripted formats with an African twist. We see this as a great opportunity to pursue copro alliances internationally, for titles with an African perspective and a global outlook. The world craves freshness, newness and the alternative. We believe this is what sets us apart. We have been very successful in Nollywood and are now looking to produce features with a broader appeal that resonate with the black Diaspora and beyond. With renewed interest for African content globally, EbonyLife is now offering unique content formats, scripts and concepts to producers and distributors. These range from high-quality shows ready for syndication to exciting, contemporary, futuristic and historical films and series ready for development. A specially resourced team has researched and developed content in four key areas, known as Afrogenres, that have been carefully curated to match audience interests. INTERNATIONAL EMMY® 2019-2020

Christiane Amanpour The International Emmy® Directorate Award is presented to Christiane Amanpour, CNN’s Chief International Anchor of the network’s award-winning, flagship global affairs program Amanpour, which also airs on PBS in the United States.


eginning in 1983 as an entry-level assistant on the international assignment desk at CNN’s headquarters in Atlanta, Amanpour rose through the organization, becoming a reporter at the New York bureau and later the network’s leading international correspondent. Amanpour’s fearless and uncompromising approach made her popular with audiences, and a force to be reckoned with by global influencers—in 1996, Newsweek said that her reporting from conflict hotspots in the Gulf and the Balkans had helped make CNN “must-see TV for world leaders.” From the 1991 Gulf War to the 2003 American-led invasion, Amanpour documented the bloody violence that has marked Iraq’s recent history. On the ground during the siege of Sarajevo, Amanpour exposed the brutality of the Bosnian War, reporting on the daily tragedy of life for civilians. She was outspoken, calling out the human rights abuses, massacres and genocide committed against the Bosnian Muslims, later 8

saying, “There are some situations one simply cannot be neutral about, because when you are neutral you are an accomplice.” In 2009 Amanpour was launched, and the primetime interview program has seen Amanpour speak to a raft of leaders and decision-makers on the issues affecting the world today. Throughout her time at CNN, Amanpour has secured exclusive interviews with global power players. In the wake of the September 11 attacks she was the first international correspondent to interview British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf and Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Amanpour spoke exclusively to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani following his landslide election victory, eliciting from him acknowledgment of the occurrence of the Holocaust. She was the first journalist to interview Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff following her country’s shocking defeat in the 2014 World Cup semi-final. She also had the rare opportunity to sit down with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, talking to him about the widespread violent demonstrations in his country. In January 2014, Amanpour also exclusively broke the news of a dossier of testimony and photographs which alleged to show systematic torture of prisoners by government forces in Syria, welcoming a panel of war crimes experts who attested to the veracity of the shocking allegations. It was with this evidence that she later confronted Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, challenging him to justify his government’s support for the Assad regime. She has reported from the aftermath of many humanitarian crises, including the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti, the 2011 Japanese tsunami, and Hurricane Katrina, where she visited a community center which had been converted to a makeshift morgue for victims of the storm. In addition to her work as an anchor and reporter, Amanpour is an active rights campaigner. A board member of the Committee to Protect Journalists, the Centre for Public Integrity and the International Women’s Media Foundation, she has used her profile to raise awareness of key global issues and journalists’ rights. She has interviewed educational rights activist Malala Yousafzai for CNN on several occasions, bringing focus to her courage and international advocacy work. In May 2014 she used an appearance on BBC television to raise awareness of the plight of the 200 Nigerian schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram, asking British Prime Minister David Cameron to join the #BringBackOurGirls campaign. Amanpour has earned every major television journalism award, including 11 News and Documentary Emmy Awards, four Peabody Awards, two George Polk Awards, three duPont-Columbia Awards and the Courage in Journalism Award. She has received nine honorary degrees, has been named a CBE and was this year inducted into the Cable Hall of Fame. She is an honorary citizen of Sarajevo and a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for Freedom of the Press and the Safety of Journalists. INTERNATIONAL EMMY® 2019-2020

A View of the U.S. TV Business

Andrew Wallenstein

September 20, 2019 Los Angeles Andrew Wallenstein, Co-Editor in Chief, Variety WALLENSTEIN: Good to be here. I know this is the big Emmy weekend, and you’ve got probably Emmy coming out of your ears at this point. This conversation will have nothing in the Emmys about it. We’re going to really talk about the business in the most macro way. I know some of you are from overseas, and so I think this will also have a bit of an American point of view. I’m also looking forward a while, but also then opening it up to the floor. I’m not here just to preach. I actually love to learn a bit, especially about the international television business, which is obviously huge. So, looking forward to also getting some back and forth—I think this is just a really interesting time to be having this kind of conversation. You guys see it every day, the forces of change sweeping across this business are tremendous. So, what I’m going to show here, this is a bunch of slides. It’s not meant to be the entire businesses encapsulated in these ten slides. No, but what I would say is I think these are the most macro trends impacting our business right now. I think it’ll probably be some food for thought for yourselves. I’ll probably talk for 84

about half an hour, and then open it up to the floor and we’ll do some give and take. These slides are also a product of a new venture that we’re working on at Variety called Variety Intelligence Platform. It’s a new section, coming sometime next year. It’s all focused on the big picture, the big issues, the macroeconomic trends. So, keep an eye out for that. Without further ado, let’s talk about some business, right? I’ve got to start here. This is really the Wall Street perspective. I see two things when I see this, which is the more collective market cap of four companies compared to 24 media and entertainment companies. So, this is actually a bit dated. This is from August. Apple, I think, literally hit a trillion a few weeks ago when the iPhone announcement came out. I’ve even cheated a little and put Netflix over here. I think Netflix is really more of a media company than a tech company anyway. When I look at this, the two things that pop out to me are, this tells you really about the larger war going on between, let’s call it Silicon Valley and Hollywood, for the hearts and minds of a global audience. I think it’s about engagement and time spent on content and other services, and it’s also about money, whether in the form of advertising or subscription services. I think what this also tells you is perhaps the double standard at work in the economy or at Wall Street right now. If you look at the finances of these companies, it says there’s a very clear double INTERNATIONAL EMMY® 2019-2020

EMMY_2019_PRIMETIME_ALT3_-.qxp_EMMY_1109_MARCH 11/7/19 1:52 PM Page 2

standard, and the tech companies are given a pass on demonstrating increasing quarterly profits in a way that there’s this bet on scale. They’ll grow audience, and eventually the business will work out. Amazon, in particular, I think is a big beneficiary of that attitude. Whereas these other companies, there’s a more traditional set of expectations that doesn’t necessarily allow them to take the bigger content spend or the big leaps and risks necessary to compete in the modern media. What I would also point out is that advertising is such a big piece of this puzzle, particularly when you’re looking at Google and Facebook. I think this is where the TV business is feeling a big risk. The socalled duopoly that is at work right now when you think about the online advertising business and just two companies commanding 60 percent of the market. Amazon is quickly turning this into a, let’s call a trio-poly as their market share goes up. It’s incredible. I know, of course, I don’t have to tell you about, on the subscription dollars, what Netflix is doing. It’s pretty tremendous. So, there’s a big war here, and when you look at those numbers, it puts it in perspective, $3.3 trillion versus $1.4 trillion, more than double. Of course, what’s also interesting, though, is the tech sector is actually starting to shrink their total number a bit versus last year. I think that goes to the cloud that is really hanging over this sector right now in a big way. You see the headlines every day, all sorts of issues about how these platforms manage their privacy issues, how they host extremist content, fake news, advertisers have big issues with that, and yet, there’s this cognitive dissonance because on the one hand, their evaluation, while somewhat down, is still sky-high. On the other hand, there’s lots of big fundamental questions that could bring regulation, whether that’s federal, international, even the U.S. states have attorney generals mobilizing against these companies in terms of anti-trust suits. So, there is certainly activity to watch that could even bode for the breakup of these businesses, which I don’t think is going to happen, but it’s in the air right now, and that’s kind of interesting. This is also obviously a very clear trend in the media business right now. You are seeing tremendous consolidation going on over the past year. Megadeals right and left. I didn’t even get a chance to update this with the latest Hasbro and Entertainment One doing their deal, which is I think a little different in what’s going on here. If you go back to this slide, these


companies to catch up have to gang up, and that’s really what is going on. It’ll be interesting over time to see, Does scale for scale’s sake make sense? If you put all these assets together, is it one plus one always three? Or, is it the combination of those assets that have to be a certain way in order for these things to really succeed? I think we’re seeing signs of this already. AT&T is suddenly under an activist investor’s scrutiny asking pretty fundamental questions about the combination of content and distribution. I think also CBS/Viacom, which is a pretty fresh merger, you’re just beginning to see questions, not just about how these two companies will combine, but also is this a prelude to more? Could we see yet other companies come together with CBS and Viacom, and create yet bigger entities? Will CBS and Viacom be the acquirer or the acquiree? It’s kind of interesting to have this conversation at this moment, though, because while there has clearly been a lot of consolidation in the past year, it’s also sort of at a lull right now. We’re kind of just waiting to see what could happen next. Not that there’s a lack of properties waiting in the wings to be acquired when you look. There is just endless speculation—will we see an agglomeration of a number of these companies? There’s not a week goes by where you don’t see a company like a Lionsgate or a Sony Pictures mentioned as someone who could possibly do some acquiring or be acquired, and how consolidation plays out is really where the business is going right now.

Andrew Wallenstein presenting an analysis of the U.S. TV business

I also want to take a step back and just give the 50,000-foot view of the business in general. This is data from PricewaterhouseCoopers, the whole business is worth $2.2 trillion. I should point out, it is still growing. When you talk about that shadow that tech puts over the media business, you would think everything is sort of heading downhill. But the business is still growing, however. Two things; number one, that growth is clearly slowing as you could see that top-line number is still a nice mid-single-digit percentage, but clearly heading downward. When you compare global digital revenue versus traditional revenue, digital is clearly doing the heavy lifting here. It’s slowly increasing while really, the traditional business as we know it has kind of plateaued. So, I just wanted to give you this overall snapshot of what the business looks like right now. Now, TV is a pretty damn big chunk of that $2.2 trillion, especially with my new friends here from the international business, when you look at how big the global TV business is, I mean, it is, far and away, the biggest revenue driver in entertainment. This is half a trillion figure that is part of an overall business worth $2.2 trillion. You look at it on the U.S. side—also a very healthy number, obviously the biggest piece of the pie—but there’s so much out there in the marketplace when you’re looking overseas. There’s another $300 billion-plus in value. It tells you how much is still going on in the TV business across so many continents. What’s also interesting I think about the TV business is, again, it’s the biggest revenue driver in entertainment. There’s all sorts of talk in Hollywood about film and music and things far afield like virtual reality. Make no mistake, Hollywood is still the television business attached to some other businesses that are a bit smaller. Those twin pillars,


advertising and affiliate fees, still massive businesses, but there’s actually kind of a cross-over that is beginning to occur when you look at how advertising that used to be dwarfed by affiliate fees starting to cross over a bit. I think that tells you a bit about where the pay-TV business is going right now. The advertising business is actually quite healthy. Clearly, ratings are declining in traditional linear television. I think we’re seeing that in pretty significant ways, particularly in younger demos. There’s no avoiding that, but actually, when you look at the advertising piece of the puzzle here in the U.S., it’s still holding up very well. I think that goes back to what I was saying previously about the overhang over the digital space. Yes, the Facebooks of the world can give you targeting and they can give you reach, and that does make that a very compelling buy. But, given all the issues with regards to extremist content, which no advertisers want to be next to, TV still looks pretty good. TV is still, even in decline, a massive audience that you’re hitting real time with full motion video, I think the appeal of that business will always be there. There’s something to be said for that. However, this is the stat that should be keeping some of us up nights. I’m sure it’s keeping some CEOs up nights. Cord-cutting is a very real phenomenon. It’s not a new phenomenon. Although I think prior to this year, it was so nominal that you could at least have the pretense of, “Well, maybe it’s going to decline very slowly for a very long time,” or, “Maybe the decline will plateau for a while, or even pop back up for a quarter or two.” All those things happen for many years, but man, when you look at these numbers right here, the comparison over the first half of 2018 to 2019, 725,000 cord-cutters, now, we’re at 2.9 million in the same period. So, this is a key stat. There has been, very clearly, an

acceleration and this does endanger the affiliate fees that we were talking about on that previous slide. It endangers the advertising to some degree as well, but now look, yes, there is an acceleration. Does that mean the sky is going to fall tomorrow? Not necessarily. I would draw a comparison, and this is not an exact comparison to the DVD business which, as we all know, has been in decline for a long time, but if you actually look at the numbers for what DVD does even in 2019, yes, it’s a pretty massive double-digit decline, but there’s still a business there, and probably will be for, not forever, but for some time. So, when I look at the pay-TV business, I don’t necessarily know that this giant decline that happened between the first half of this year and last year, that we will necessarily see that again. That decline could actually moderate. I don’t think it’s going to reverse though. I do think— one man’s opinion—we are in a state of secular decline that is not going back, the genie is not going back in the bottle. However, kind of like the DVD, this could be a drip that happens very, very slowly over many, many years. It’s not exactly a cheery thing to talk about managing decline, but when you’ve got something that declines as massive as this, as slowly as this, I do think it gives media companies the opportunity and the time—and I would think we’re seeing this already—to really rethink their businesses. I think the media companies, the content companies, are going to have to do that. When you think about cable networks, which have really been the underpinning of the content business for so many years, if those businesses were to go away tomorrow, that would be cataclysmic for Hollywood. I don’t think that’s going to happen. I think to some degree, these brands will actually redefine themselves for a new media age, whether these brands become relevant as apps or the like. I think we will see some of that, but let’s also not ignore what we are already currently seeing. We are seeing that these incredibly bloated cabled bundles with dozens and dozens of channels, we are starting to see some of those channels in recent years go extinct. We are starting to see some of these media companies that program these channels focus on a lesser and lesser number, and of course, we are also starting to see that they are INTERNATIONAL EMMY® 2019-2020

Academy Chairman Fred Cohen with Academy Secretary Simon Sutton and Members Superna Kalle, Mikhail Solodnikov and Lu Ning at the Luncheon hitting into the streaming business. This is really, I think, the slide. This is really the moment that we’re at now because I’m not blowing smoke here when I say, “Could we be at a more interesting time? Could we be at a more precarious time in this business when you see the explosion of streaming options that are hitting right now?” It’s unbelievable. Of course, it’s not a new trend. We have what we call our early aggregators like Netflix that have been at this for quite some time along with Amazon that have grown massive businesses. They’re not going anywhere anytime soon. Nothing can convince me otherwise, no matter what you want to say about this new class of challengers that are coming from the very companies that are building the cable businesses of the past 50 years. They are now trying to establish themselves in a whole new way. Fighting fire with fire, going against the Netflixs of the world, spending billions of dollars on content. Let’s stop for a second and understand the implications of that, because I don’t think that’s entirely additive. When you’ve got the varied companies of the world that have put all the cable and broadcast channels out there that had been the Golden Goose for Hollywood for so long, then make them compete with their own content that is now available to stream at a cheaper price point, you can’t tell me that’s not going to have an impact on the bread-and-butter traditional Golden Goose business that’s been there all along. I don’t know how fast that decline is going to be, but you can’t, to me, argue that there won’t be some sort of self-cannibalization there. When you’re looking at Disney+ and you’re looking at Peacock, and HBO Max, this is the story of 2019 and beyond, how these ventures do is going to mean everything. It is going to tell you everything about where these businesses go. Let’s be honest. There is a possibility that not everyone you see listed here is going to be here in a year or two. There’s not room for everyone at a party where Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu have already well entrenched themselves, and I frankly don’t see a scenario in the near term where those businesses go away or even decline significantly. I think they’re that entrenched. Of course, there’s other tech players coming in as well. Apple made a fascinating move of their own with this subscription streaming 90

service. So, it just goes to what I was saying about the 2019 to 2020 phase that is going to be unbelievable because it is, I would argue, probably the biggest change to hit this business in decades. It will be fun to watch. Now of course, there’s still other pockets to the streaming world. What I call the D-to-C TV brands, a network like Showtime or Starz that you used to just be able to pay for as part of the cable bundle while these same companies also offer broadband. They perhaps will start packaging the Showtime and Starz of the world in a broadband package, in the same way they will still offer the linear channel business. What will that do with that linear channel business? Cannibalization to me is certainly inevitable. Something that may not be on everyone’s radar that I want to point it out is what some are calling FAST TV streaming. FAST is an acronym for Free Ad Supported TV. Probably the most prominent example is Pluto [which was acquired by Viacom]. It’s a free product for adsupported content that you stream, but it’s not the same TV that you get in your linear packages. Frankly, it’s lesser content. It’s library. It’s catalog that the studios are only too happy to either buy them up, or sell or license to them. There was actually just a report that NBCUniversal is thinking about getting into this business. They’re signing up dozens of millions of subscribers fairly quickly. So, we’re just beginning to see what is the implication of those streamers. There’s also very notable niche players. WWE is a classic example. They’ve been at it for a while. They were kind of a pioneer where WWE has a very robust linear business globally, channels, pay-per-view, but some years ago [they had] a very bold idea to launch a streaming venture and are already at 1.6 million subscribers which, when we’re talking about Netflix, may sound like a drop in the bucket, but when you’re talking about a niche media brand, that could be the beginning of a whole reorientation of where their business is. Again, there is this balance between the traditional, what brought you to the party, and the businesses that they are pivoting to, what could be the future of their businesses. Also, I wanted to point out what I call the resellers, because this is also a fairly growing business that more and more players are getting into. INTERNATIONAL EMMY® 2019-2020

Academy Members Nelson Sato and Rodrigo Bernardo

Amazon, Apple, Facebook are basically taking a lot of these OTT brands out there, like some of these niche players, WWE, Crunchyroll, and bundling them together on a platform like Amazon, where you’re already doing so much business there—you’re buying your paper on Amazon Prime, you’re watching your Mrs. Maisel, this is a whole other area for them that they’re not only doing quite well in terms of bringing in subscribers and essentially becoming an MVPD or a cable operator onto themselves, but this, in turn, also represents new opportunities for the HBOs of the world to find new subscribers on these platforms. There’s probably more upside there than back with the traditional players like Comcast and Charter. Lastly, I want to point out the virtual MVPDs. Maybe some of you are subscribers. This is a fascinating sector that I wanted to drill a little deeper into. For those that don’t know, maybe you’ve heard about YouTube TV, Hulu with live TV, Sling TV, it’s your cable package, but thinner, meaning less channels with a smaller price point. You here in America know how bloated the traditional cable package is, how expensive it is to pay for channels that you’re not necessarily even watching all that often. So, this was supposed to be really a great opportunity for the entertainment establishment to stop the bleeding of cordcutting with a cheaper price point, and there was some early success, but I’ve got to tell you, it’s not looking good anymore. The reason for that is the same dynamic that I think jeopardized the traditional cable or multichannel business, which is entertainment companies stuffing too many channels into what was supposed to be a thin package. So, if you had a channel package with 30 or 40 channels, and that all of a sudden became 50 or 60 as entertainment companies muscled in their other channels the way they did in the traditional packages, well, guess what? You want to make a profit, you’re going to need to bring the price up. As soon as that happens, as soon as the marketing firepower went away, we started to see a significant decline. I honestly would not be shocked if, in a year or two, most of these businesses are not even happening. I think it’s that dynamic—a sense of change here that 92

what in 2015, 2016, looked like the great hope, now looks like a stopgap measure that’s probably not even going to work that long. We’ll see. Maybe there’ll be some new ventures that will come in, or perhaps some of these ventures will pivot in all sorts of interesting ways. I also wanted to point out the connected-TV phenomenon. That’s another beneficiary to the streaming boom. It’s on the hardware side. Mobile is real. When you look at long-form content, there’s a reason Jeffrey Katzenberg is slicing these things into eight minutes for Quibi. Mobile is really about short-form content. People in their homes like to rely on the biggest screen in their home for the long-form viewing experience, and I think that is what is driving such growth in connected TV. While you have Amazon Fire TV, Apple, Microsoft, Sony, Google, literally every major big player, Roku, a small disruptive company, has a commanding presence in this space that is really the leading option for people that are looking to turn their TVs into streaming vehicles. They’ve also built out quite an ad platform. They’ve got a commanding chunk of the advertising going there. I would put Roku ahead of Fire TV and Apple TV, which is really saying something. I think it also, as we speak more broadly, tells you about this space in terms of anything could happen. Just because you are a massive company does not necessarily mean that victory is yours. When you see a company like Roku over the course of a decade edge their way up, it tells you that you could look at the entrenched players on the field right now, and think they’re so dominant that it’s going to last forever, but I don’t necessarily see that as the case. It’s those kinds of broad issues that are going into this new venture that we’re launching called Variety Intelligence Platform. It’s going to be a really interesting mix if you like the kind of content I was offering here today here from this stage as we talked broad big-picture issues. We’re going to have informed special reports, exclusive data, day-today briefings, I think it’s a new layer of the Variety experience that’s really a function of the times that we’re in. We can’t just rely on the same old news consumption habits when you’re playing on a field where everything is changing as rapidly as it is. So, feel free to email me at eic@variety.com to find out more about that.

Ola Christoffersson, Axel Gordh Humlesjö and Ali Fegan

Nominees BBC Africa Eye: Sweet Sweet Codeine

Exposure: Iran Unveiled: Taking on the Ayatollahs

Fantástico: 11 Days in North Korea

BBC World Service Nigeria

ITV / Hardcash Productions United Kingdom

Rede Globo / GloboNews Brazil

Sweet Sweet Codeine follows Nigerian journalists Ruona Meyer and Adejuwon Soyinka as they investigate their country’s devastating addiction to codeine cough syrup. This program reveals the horrors of an opioid crisis and exposes the corrupt forces behind it, resulting in a total ban of the drug in Nigeria.

ITV goes undercover into Iran, filming the women who launched an unprecedented protest, challenging the country’s religious rulers. Forty years since the hijab was made compulsory, these women risk imprisonment and torture to demand freedom, in the year when the most widespread unrest against the Islamic Republic swept Iran.

11 Days in North Korea draws a portrait of the country amidst the 70th anniversary of the nation’s founding. It also shows the dilemmas facing journalists that report on NK, and includes rare footage of forced labor in the countryside and unexpected real-life situations.
