January 27th Panel and Q&A
Why Your OTT Technology Is Painting You into a Corner, and What to Do about It

The last year has seen a dramatic expansion in the opportunities for service provides to grow their business and distribute and monetize their content in new ways. Unfortunately, in many cases, the lack of scalability and flexibility in their OTT technology platforms has held them back from taking full advantage.

January 28th Panel and Q&A

Although OTT viewing increased significantly in 2020, growth for many aspirational Tier 1 services was really a “false positive” fueled by the low-hanging fruit of pandemic viewing: it looked good when measured against internal business plans, but will not be enough to win in the long term.
