On this weeks show we’re chatting with Anthony Layser, VP of Content Partnerships & Programming at Comcast’s US FAST channel platform Xumo. We’re discussing what makes a great FAST channel, and what he’s looking to acquire for Xumo. 

Plus we catch up with Lucy Smith, Director of MIPTV and MIPCOM as we look ahead to this year’s April event in Cannes – the first for 3 years. We’ll find out what delegates can expect from this year’s event, who’s already signed up to be on the Croisette, and what industry heavyweights will be in attendance at one of the first major post pandemic international TV market events. They’re both in conversation with Boom! PR’s Justin Crosby.
