Distributors line up affordable factual as budgets fall


With cash-strapped broadcasters turning away from original commissions and towards acquisitions, this could be a good time to be a distributor. But how are the independent sales houses not attached to channels or large production groups keeping a pipeline of content flowing and what models are they using to pay for it?


Looking around the content business at the moment, you’d be forgiven for thinking we’re in the midst of some doomsday, extinction event – and perhaps we are.


Not absolutely everybody is having a terrible time of it, though. For now, schedules and streaming services still need content to stock their shelves and if there isn’t the money to commission new originals then the obvious stop-gap is in acquisitions.
