Sonia Fleck, CEO stated, “We are working hard to continually bring new high-quality 4K content to our clients. We are also pleased to see that the shelf life on our factual content has proven to be a solid offering for so many broadcasters hit by interrupted production schedules due to Covid. The plan is to ambitiously invest in new content and utilize our vast catalogue to work closely with our broadcasters to ease through the difficult moment.”
