The future is bright for the British television industry


An argument for and against the future of British broadcasting

For

Export more than half the world's TV formats
British television shows now feature prodominatly in US television schedules
The business model presented by piracy actually represents the future
All the UK's major broadcasters have set up websites
Digital Britain
The UK's digital economy accounts for around 8% of GDP. It has been one of the fastest growing successes of the past decades

Against
The UK's advertising money has plummeted by £100m in the past eight years
The proliferation of video-sharing websites means that viewers around the world are increasingly using their computers to download and view entire programmes
The makers of them programmes do not recieve money and so it potentially threatens the basis on which programmes are funded
