OTT vs. CTV: The Battle for TV’s New Operating System

As traditional broadcast and MVPD television delivery mechanisms give way to an avalanche of direct-to-consumer streaming options, the competition to control the gateway between content, advertising and the viewer is becoming intense; we discuss what’s ahead in the world of pucks, sticks and especially smart TVs themselves.

57 (Thousand) Channels & Nothing On?

With a blizzard of streaming content choices available to even the most basic of American media households, consumers risk being overwhelmed by even the simplest of viewing decisions; we discuss how programmers and consumers can each benefit by coming improvements in content guidance, navigation, recommendation, and search.

Mobile Data & ID Resolution in a CTV World

OTT/CTV as a data-driven platform provides brands and their agency partners more precision in audience targeting. Mobile data helps identify these unique audiences and allows marketers to connect with more receptive consumers across streaming platforms. With constant industry updates around data usage, how will new solutions around ID resolution maintain consumer privacy without compromising scale?

Skinny Bundles & the Legacy of "Linear"

Despite repeated proclamations to the contrary, the “death” of the linear television channel appears premature in the streaming age; the surprising durability of classic channel grids, familiar programmer brands and even a new breed of linear FAST/streaming TV-like channels poses a bevy of opportunities and challenges, which we’ll discuss.

Streaming TVs "Mid-Majors"
