Well there's a title I never imagined writing... ITV have just had their bid for the famous pig's production company rejected, with Brexit cited as one of the potential factors. This story highlighted two things for me - we never know where change will hit, and how vital it is to adapt to that change. Recognising the consumer shift to digital is leading ITV's strategy, and despite this short term setback for them, it seems sensible to look to future opportunities.
"Terrestrial TV is coming under huge pressure from on-demand services like Amazon Prime and Netflix, which also own a lot of their own content. "ITV has been snapping up production companies as it clearly understands content is vital for its future, but it too could be the subject of a takeover. "A sharp fall in its share price this year and the collapse in sterling since the Brexit vote has left it wide open. The cheap pound makes unique UK assets like ITV very desirable."
