James Murdoch works across 21st Century Fox’s global portfolio of businesses and has direct responsibility for the group’s television interests, which include the Fox Networks Group in the United States and, internationally, the Company’s holdings in BSkyB, Sky Deutschland, Sky Italia and STAR India.
James Murdoch represents one of the world’s global original content powerhouses. 21st Century Fox has dared to challenge convention, reshaping the industry and developing businesses that are large employers of creative talent. Their commitment to international television production coupled with their interests in pan-European pay-TV makes this a unique opportunity to hear about the group’s plans from a recognised leader in the television industry. At a time when the quest for powerful original content has never been so relevant, MIPCOM 2014 is delighted to have James Murdoch speak and contribute to the global debate on creativity in today’s digital era.
