SBT Brazil took a bold step to enhance its content library, curating a collection of internationally acclaimed series and films that viewers are eager to see.

Introduction

The television landscape is evolving and even an established organization like SBT Brazil, a leader in both Portuguese broadcasting and streaming needed to adapt. SBT faced competition from global giants so it decided to diversify its content offerings. SBT wanted to acquire top-tier international content to engage its audiences with fresh and interesting stories from around the globe.

Challenges

Adding international content presented several challenges for SBT Brazil:

Finding the right type of content

Doing the research and discovering the right international shows and movies is not easy. They needed to find titles, genres, and languages that would truly click with their diverse audience.

Sourcing the desired content

SBT had to navigate through a thick network of distributors, sales agents, and regional companies that had their own rules and procedures. Buying content from new countries like South Korea, Turkey, Japan, and Brazil can be difficult if you haven’t explored those markets before.

Acquiring the rights

Securing the rights to broadcast these shows in Brazil proved to be difficult for SBT. They had to ensure the availability of rights for specific territories, which often involved long and complex negotiations and unforeseen problems.
