Welcome to the September 2011 edition of
The Newsreel, Ernst & Young’s newsletter on the media and entertainment (M&E) industry.
The print media segment saw many deals this month, with both foreign and domestic players trying to formalize as many deals as possible to garner a share of the growing Indian print market in the newspaper and magazine segments.
The success of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in India has led to an increased interest in other sports in the country, with sporting associations rushing to follow the IPL way and build up their sports so that these can be profitable for them as well as for franchise owners.
The film exhibition segment has undergone a sea change, from single-screen theaters to multiplexes, and now to the concept of megaplexes. This month, we focus on the country’s film exhibition segment and the trends, challenges and way forward for it.
Anil Arjun, CEO Reliance Mediaworks, shares his views on India’s film exhibition segment In the Point of view section.
I hope you enjoy reading this edition of
The Newsreel. We look forward to you valuable feedback.
With kind regards,
Farokh T. Balsara
