BACKGROUND:

Africa is the world's most promising multi-platform entertainment content marketplace. With modern infrastructure investments and rising disposable incomes, the entertainment market, and especially the TV content sector has grown exponentially. New, world class services are emerging in 2018 for broadcasters, pay-tv platforms, mobile operators and on-demand video services to monetize the consumption of entertainment content, and for content producers and distributors to make money feeding an immense appetite for film, television and digital entertainment. With the launch of ‘DISCORE' in 2017, DISCOP now features a three-day music track and the webinar will discuss synch licensing and other opportunities for the music sector as well.
