The Antenna Programme


The Antenna Programme is a joint venture between media consultancy Decipher and iBurbia Studios.  They are a unique opportunity to keep up to date with the fast moving changes in the TV industry and are based on the principle that you have to see and interact with new TV propositions and services to understand them. Delivered by Decipher consultants, the sessions make amazing use of the fact that iBurbia is the only open-access venue which provides a comprehensive selection of media technology, including all of the UK’s TV platforms, a wide variety of streaming devices and streaming services, and the latest consoles.

All London sessions include a live demonstration of Sky Q.
