Hiley provide board-level advice on launching cable and satellite channels, increasing profitability, reducing costs and improving output to generate larger audiences
Around half new broadcasters fail in their first year, making broadcasting one of the toughest businesses to crack! Hiley helps new and established channels to maximise their profitability whilst growing audience levels, creating stability and shareholder wealth.
The high failure-rate makes launching a new channel a very high-risk venture. Hiley experts have run some of the UK's biggest and smallest channels. We help create higher quality output for less, and our relationships can secure lower-cost, higher-spec satellite packages.
We help channels to multiply their profitability, creativity and production values which audiences respond to in large numbers
