A Conversation with Public Service Broadcasters

On October 23rd 2012 a group of experts from various broadcast organisations gathered in Brussels for a coversation on the future of media.

Adam Watson Brown hosted the conversation. Afonso Ferreira and Christian Micas facilitated the debate. There was general consensus on elements to be included in the PSM future that came out of this event, although there was a minority view that getting the public to pay for PSM in the future could be challenging given the profusion of media including user-generated content.
