Singapore’s public service broadcast funding receives overhaul
Singapore’s MDA has re-launched the Public Service Content Scheme as the Public Service Broadcast (PSB) Contestable Funds Scheme. Content producers will have now more opportunities to create innovative PSB programmes for different commissioning broadcasters under the scheme.
Funding is extended to local nationwide TV platforms, including local FTA and non-FTA TV platforms, to encourage the development of original PSB content that can be offered on multiple broadcast platforms (e.g. TV drama with spin-offs episodes on internet or radio). Previously, PSB programmes were available only on FTA TV.
This revamped scheme is based on the grant model, whereas the previous was on a co-investment model. Funding for selected programme concepts will be provided to the independent production companies via the platform partner.
