About

TVWeek.com is proud to welcome a trio of prominent executives who will be our eyes and ears on the French Riviera at this year’s MIPTV international television market.

The three companies these gentlemen represent all figure to be involved with some of the biggest deals to take place in Cannes, whether it’s program acquisition, sales, technology, or developing new platforms.

Mr. Neil Braun is president of distribution and marketing for Starz Media, a U.S. company heading to MIP for the first time. Sean Cohan is senior VP, International for A&E Television Networks and will be at the market with the goal of managing and expanding A&E Television Networks’ brands and services outside the U.S. Greg Moyer serves as general manager of Voom HD Networks, and will be at MIP to explore new avenues for his brand.

As the world gets smaller, all three of these companies figure to play bigger roles both within the United States and around the world. Their blogs will provide insights to the market that you won’t find anywhere else.

VOOMing on the Croisette

VOOMing on the Croisette

Over the next week, we'll be moving through the market scouting opportunities for Voom HD Networks, a suite of 15 HD channels distributed through the Dish Network in the U.S., and for Voom HD Global, our 24/7 HD channel on the air in Europe and (in a matter of days) Asia.

As the General Manager of the service, I'll be leading a team comprised of program buyers, commissioners and business development specialists who are looking to buy, co-produce, or commission content, as well as to explore opportunities for launching our pioneering HD service throughout the world.

This blog will tap into conversations we're having with over 150 companies who contribute to some aspect of our day-to-day activities—producers, distributors, satellite and cable platforms, technology companies, and the others that enable our global commerce. Throughout the week, I'll try to shed light on trends that we're seeing in the market... particularly as they relate to HDTV production and distribution.

We're heading to Cannes tonight, arriving Saturday for MIPDOC and to get our "sea legs" before the marathon of meetings, meals, and the melange of late-night shenanigans that are MIPTV.

Check back all next week for more...


Greg Moyer is General Manager of Voom HD Networks.
