Islands in the Streaming: Local Content Discovery in a Global Market

About

In the age of video streaming, content discovery is now a crucial strategic space for screen industries. The battle to capture attention is fierce, with streaming platforms, device makers and technology all playing a critical role in shaping the content we watch. But what about local and public benefit storytelling -- how can it cut through in a world dominated by tech-driven giants?

The panel brings together experts from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), Queensland University of Technology (QUT), and Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) to explore the role of platforms and AI-driven algorithms in deciding what we watch, and the impacts on content makers and value to the Australian community. They will discuss ways to ensure transparency, fairness, and diversity in TV streaming in Australia. They will examine the impacts of a global movement towards new regulation of the industry including local content quotas, prominence, public access, licensing and rights.

Join us for this thought-provoking discussion on the future of TV streaming in Australia and the role of algorithms, quotas, and public value in shaping it.
