History of Buying And Selling TV Content Found in VideoAge

The Most complete (and the only available) histories of TV and film international trade shows


For those of you fascinated by historical references concerning the business of selling and buying TV content, the home page of VideoAge website has posted five unique historic reports:


History of the L.A. Screenings


History of the American Film Market


History of MIP-TV


History of NATPE


History of MIFED (in Italian)


These historic accounts are unique because, up to now, no other publication, reference book or websites, for that matter, have ever covered this aspect.

For example, the Wikipedia’s article about the American Film Market is grossly incomplete. Similarly, there is no detailed information on the MIP-TV Wikipedia. However, the Wikipedia’s ( rendition of the L.A. Screenings seems to be fairly complete.

VideoAge’s historical reports go hand-in-hand with its monthly features about the International TV Distribution Hall of Fame honorees ( ), another topic that it is vastly ignored elsewhere.

Those aforementioned five markets, together with the leaders of international distribution helped to create the television industry as we know it today: a multi-billion dollar sector vital for any world economy, international relations and creative enterprises.
