Mediaset looks to organise broadcasters into European streaming service

Monday 15 July 2019 | 13:37 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Background
Italian broadcaster Mediaset is setting up a new company based in Amsterdam called Media for Europe that is expected to lead the group's expansion in Europe. Cultural and personal differences with potential partners may pose an obstacle to the plan, and existing alliances also need to be respected, but there are enough candidates out there for Mediaset. The aim is to develop a streaming service that can appeal to consumers enough to compete with the American majors.
