Peter Fincham: TV has conquered the internet

Peter Fincham, who also runs ITV’s online content operation, said that even just a few years ago when he was running BBC1 the view was that channels were dead. “The prevalent feeling in the BBC was that the internet will conquer channels and those running channels were doing something quaint and old fashioned that will pass into history,” he said, speaking at an event held by TV marketing body Thinkbox. “The opposite has happened. TV has conquered internet.” – Mark Sweney, The Guardian
