ITV making “little progress” with pay-TV plans

ITV chairman Archie Norman has made little progress with his plans to develop a viable pay-TV strategy for the UK commercial broadcaster, according to a report in newspaper The Mail on Sunday.

The former ASDA supermarket chain chief is currently working on a strategic review that he plans to unveil with ITV’s interim results in August. The paper cited a source close to Norman as saying that ITV was not yet confident that it could ensure a significant presence on BSkyB’s platform together with assurances from Sky that it would not increase its carriage terms every few years.

Norman’s plans also call for more in-house production of hit shows under new production chief Kevin Lygo.
