"Challenges of public service broadcasting in distribution via the internet" – an interview

   

At IBC 2018, the company Akamai asked me to discuss the particular challenges faced by ARD, ZDF and Deutsche Welle in distributing their radio and television channels over the internet as part of their trade fair presentation. With G&L, we have been delivering public service content via Akamai since 1999 – the topic is virtually part of our DNA at G&L and a matter close to my heart.

The interview was conducted in English and is about 25 minutes long. It was recorded as part of the AkamaiTV series: "G&L Geißendörfer & Leschinsky works with some of Europe's biggest public service broadcasters so be sure to join Alexander Leschinsky who will share his advice on how to meet the daunting challenges of universal service obligations to OTT viewers."
