Next week the APEX TV Market scores a couple of firsts — the first time that it’s been staged in Portugal and the first time that non TV distributors have been invited to exhibit. Andy Grant is a veteran of many previous TV Markets in his role as Manager Passenger Entertainment and Communications at Emirates. In this week’s PME Interview, Andy talks to Steve Harvey about the importance of TV programs on the Emirates ‘ice’ system and explains why all airline IFE managers should aim to attend the market.
It’s TV Market time and in the next few days airlines, TV distributors and content service providers will be packing their bags and heading off to the English seaside resort of Brighton. A record 50 distributors will be showcasing their latest TV programs, amongst them a team from the London office of CNBC. In this latest PME Interview, Steve Harvey talks to CNBC’s Anthony Lilleyman, Vice President Commercial for Europe, the Middle East and Africa about their plans to launch a live broadcast service for airlines.
