Industry operators create complete TV programming schedules using content they have purchased or produced themselves. In the past decade, the industry has undergone significant changes. For instance, it is increasingly dominated by subscription packages rather than free-to-air broadcasts and has come to include video-on-demand services provided on screens other than TVs. The switch to digital TV has had the biggest influence on the industry, allowing the number of new channels to increase rapidly and changing the sources of broadcasters' revenue. Industry revenue is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 1.9% over the five years through 2015-16, reaching £10.4 billion.
The Television Programming and Broadcasting industry includes operators that create TV programming schedules and video-on-demand channels using purchased or self-produced content. The industry excludes the production of TV programmes and the assembly and distribution of packages of channels without programming.
