Content owners and distributors face competition from OTT platforms, traditional media companies and now even international players all vying for consumer attention. These days, success comes down to creative communication, marketing, brand partnerships and relationship building with the audience.

Let’s face it: Consumers have been there, done that. They’re surrounded by incredible technology and software that works better than ever before and largely automates their lives. So how do traditional programmers and distributors compete? By out-innovating the innovators, and focusing on their strengths—both inside and outside the home. And even as old alliances fray because of new OTT-SVOD opportunities to go direct to the consumer, the consumer experience is fast evolving into a multiscreen relationship that could benefit all sides. This session will break it all down and make you go “wow.”
You’ve heard the buzz. You’ve seen the TV ads. You’ve collided with someone on the sidewalk because one of you was playing Pokemon Go. With major companies like Sony, Facebook, Google and others pushing AR & VR experiences, immersive platforms have slowly become a part of the content landscape. The question now is how to monetize VR environments—whether it relates to VR experiences within specific content or to content navigation and discovery. This session will also map out the current marketplace, discuss emerging business models and give you keen insight on where AR/VR will take the industry in the coming months and years.
Global opportunities abound, but local partnerships between distributors and programmers have never been more vital. Distributors want local engagement to lower churn and cement stronger customer relationships. And programmers want to offer advertisers new levels of hypertargeting, customized marketing and campaigns that feel “local” even if they’re really part of a national or global initiative. Could this be the key to taking on more mass-market focused OTT players? In this session, experts will walk you through local marketing and sales strategies that can increase audience engagement, drive tune-in and bolster customer acquisition.
No, the bundle isn’t dead. But the dominance of large bundled content packages as the primary lifeblood of the industry has waned as content choices become skinner, more flexible and infinitely customizable. Now that streaming technology and massive broadband pipes have turned this once a-la-carte dream into a business reality, the implications for advertising, licensing and overall ROI are becoming more complicated by the day. The ultimate irony is that as some cable nets give up on expanded basic carriage to pursue OTT, many of their OTT counterparts are successfully negotiating positions on set-top boxes. In this session, experts will analyze the landscape and give their best prognostications for where the business is headed.
