Media & Entertainment

Doing business in a digital world

In an industry synonymous with creativity and innovation, the bar for business excellence is set high. You need to embrace new technology, develop new distribution models and satisfy the demands of a voracious and outspoken consumer.

At the same time it’s important to manage costs, exceed stakeholder expectations and comply with new regulations.

There’s always another challenge just around the corner.

EY’s Global Media & Entertainment Center can help. We bring together a worldwide team of 7,500 M&E professionals with deep technical experience in providing assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services to the industry’s leaders.

Our network of professionals collaborate and share knowledge around the world, to provide consistent, high-quality service and leverage our leading market share position to provide you with actionable information, quickly and reliably.

Key issues that we help you manage in today’s media and entertainment environment include:

  • Maintaining cost discipline

    As business models evolve, M&E companies are rethinking how their organizations should be structured. Companies are not solely focused on how they do things, but what they do — activities that maintain their core products and brands.

    Some companies are analyzing which in-house processes could be performed through outsourcing or other arrangements without impacting their core products and services.

    We help our clients:

    • Assess cost control initiatives to improve value for the company.
    • Adopt and transition to outsourcing, co-sourcing and/or shared services.
    • Perform scenario-based planning and forecasting to help improve cost efficiencies.
