Media editor John McCarthy and TV journalist Hannah Bowler recap the past 12 months of streaming news and boy it was a big one. 2022 was the year Netflix got ads, Warner Media merged with Discovery, and cinema was dealt a huge blow by changing streaming habits.

The biggest win for the marketing industry is that 2022 was the year TV returned to advertising as saturation led subscription services to embrace AVOD models. Along with Netflix, Disney+ gave the greenlight for ads on its service, Peacock and Discovery+ also adapted their original models to include various ad-package options.

Hannah and John also discuss ITV's shiny new AVOD streamer ITVX which drops on December 8. In last week's podcast we caught up with Vice, Channel 4 and eBay to chat all things branded content, you can listen here.
