Monday 23 September 2019 | 07:05 CET | News
Nexstar was allowed to become the largest broadcaster in the US last week. In the broader video market, some of the biggest hit television shows were at the centre of attention as Netflix and AT&T were buying up series for their streaming services.

Our Global Media Index was down 1.2 percent in week 38, versus a loss of 0.5 percent for the S&P 500 index.
