Media and Entertainment industry

Spotlight on change

Media and entertainment companies are finding content creation, aggregation, and distribution—their fundamental ecosystem—ever-evolving and morphing as new technologies come into play that disrupt traditional business models. From interactive gaming, films, broadcast television, and print and publishing to live entertainment, social media, and advertising, M&E businesses live or die based on how well they identify and manage trends. Deloitte plays a leading advisory role in the media and entertainment arena.
