The pandemic changed the way we create contacts with buyers. All big TV Industry Markets having been cancelled, we now have to deal with a virtual world type of communication – no more handshakes. Although, ironically, the situation has made it easier to create direct contacts with buyers over the phone which was more difficult to do before the pandemic. One thing is for sure, in the upcoming months we will see the direct results of this continuously evolving situation to which the TV industry has to adapt.

Is there a drop in prices and greater competition?

Not greater competition, but effectively a drop prices.
