Broadband Content Bits: Kangaroo Exclusivity, Endemol Move

Kangaroo: Kangaroo is bowing to TV producers’ demands to abandon exclusivity on shows it will carry. PACT last week asked the Competition Commission to ensure Kangaroo gives rights back to show-makers after a set window. Now reckons Kangaroo has “backtracked” and will offer shows to other VOD services – important if it’s to refute those “cartel” claims.

Endemol: Big Brother maker Endemol is promoting its Dutch MD Paul Römer to be global programming head for the whole group from January 1. Following creative director Peter Bazalgette’s recent departure, Römer will head the creative process, reporting to CEO Ynon Kreiz. Via Broadcast.
