Abstract


Abstract: This paper examines the importance of international co-productions/co-ventures to Canadian television program production and the motives of participants in choosing this mode. The objective is to improve our understanding of this competitive strategy in the increasingly global television market emerging as a consequence of the new technologies and trend to de-regulation. Résumé: Cet article traite de l'importance des coproductions et des coentreprises internationales pour l'industrie canadienne de la télévision et des raisons pour lesquelles les participants choisissent cette approche. Notre objectif est de mieux comprendre cette stratégie qui s'est avérée concurentielle dans le contexte d'un marché télévisuel devenu global en raison de l'émergence de nouvelles technologies et d'une tendance vers la déréglementation.
