The French analysts are worried that the ad spend will disappear and the GFC/tightening of belts will impact further on the ad-drop. But it isn't about that- it's about consumer experience, making better programming that's more engaging. Less The Big Bang Theory (absolute drivel and shit), and really Le Big Bang style content.
And advertisers, if you're really worried, invest your marketing budgets in the creation of your own programs! The creation of an engaging 12 episode series will have longevity like you could never have imagined.
