Working with Members to facilitate partnerships with big tech to better serve audiences
Non-traditional competitors with new technologies and changing consumer behaviour are forcing public service broadcasters to rethink their traditional model. There is a growing need to understand and build stronger and more beneficial relationships with industry-leading third-party platforms and new media value chain players to ensure public service media (PSM) stay relevant in the new and changing media ecosystem.
Through a mandate from the Executive Board, our Digital Unit and the Digital Steering Committee are approaching FAANGS related activities from two key avenues:

The EBU Young Audiences and Digital teams collected various Members strategic priorities on FAANGS, specifically for the Kids/Youth brands. The survey serves to inform Members about how FAANGS are perceived throughout the network, as well as guide the EBU on how to better service Members on this topic. The data was collected over the summer of 2019 and the report was published in October 2019.
With the ever changing non-linear landscape, how can we compete with the big players when it comes to our Members online players? What are some best practices from around the network?
BBC, SVT, and NRK share their cases on how they prioritized their players for the new landscape, as well as sharp shorts from many more Members in the network.
Every month the EBU prepares a “FAANGS Update” for EBU Members who are involved in FAANGS discussions which summarizes the most pressing issues and topics that impact public service media and their relationship with platforms and social networks on an editorial, production, and strategic level. To receive this update, please contact the EBU’s Head of Digital, Ezra Eeman.
