We look at the future of streaming, with a raft of new services launched or coming soon.

We look at the future of streaming, with a raft of new services launched or coming soon. Reemah Sakaan heads up streaming service BritBox, which recently expanded to the UK, and discusses their plans. Industry analyst Jeff Minsky from Media Village explains the complicated interconnected partnerships that exist between the different streaming services at the moment. And we consider the ambitions of established streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime, and newcomers Apple and Disney. We hear from Disney's chief executive Bob Iger who spoke to the BBC's The Media Show. Also in the programme, Google has announced it will stop giving advertisers the ability to target people using data such as political affiliation. Our technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones considers the implications. Plus, continuing our series of interviews with senior figures from Britain's major political parties ahead of next month's general election, we talk to Kirsty Blackman, deputy leader of the Scottish National Party, about her party's economic proposals and views on Brexit.
