It comes after the MPITV 2020 event was cancelled due to concerns over coronavirus pandemic.
Reed MIDEM, the organiser of MIPTV, has announced the launch of MIPTV ONLINE+, a premium online platform available for free to all registered MIPTV, MIPDoc and MIPFormats 2020 clients.
The new service will launch on March 30 and offer connected access to exclusive content originally programmed for the 57th edition of MIPTV.
The event, together with MIPDoc and MIPFormats, was scheduled to run March 28 to April 2 in Cannes.
MIPTV ONLINE+ will enable buyers to stream distributor programmes scheduled for the MIPTV Drama Buyers’ Summit and the MIPDoc Screenings Library.
The online service will also stream the in-development, MIPDoc and MIPFormats project pitches, as well as MIPTV’s exclusive market intelligence conference sessions, Fresh TV and the Factual and Kids Content Showcases.
Commenting on the new service, Lucy Smith, Television Division Deputy Director at Reed MIDEM said: “Our clients are unable to come to MIPTV in Cannes, so we are bringing MIPTV to them. Starting on March 30, delegates from 94 countries will be able to interact with one another online and experience originally scheduled MIP programming from the comfort of their office or home. Nothing replaces face-to-face meetings, but MIPTV ONLINE+ content, networking and access to the international entertainment business community is totally unique.”
In addition, the MIPTV online database will be available during the months ahead, allowing users to connect and interact with the MIPTV community.
