Trends & Outlook

“The trend in Asia is to embrace digital technology. Keshet International will focus on delivering worldclass prime-time entertainment that incorporates mobile interactivity. We’re also exploring partnerships with OTT platforms with ever-growing subscribers in Asia. While international formats are still dominating channels’ schedules, we’re seeing a trend towards co-development. We’re already working on several deals which will allow us to develop from Keshet’s slate directly to partners’ studios and channels in a co-development model.”

Asia focus in 2018

“We’d all love to crack China, but at the moment it doesn’t factor largely in our plans due to the restrictive regulations. India and the SAARC region is a major focus as our newly launched shingle in Mumbai continues to make huge strides into the local adaptation of Keshet’s formats and into local production, too. We’ll be doubling down this year in Vietnam, Thailand, the Philippines and Indonesia as well.”
