The New Era of Aggregation
Gone are the days where video programming distribution was such a “simple” endeavor. Various multichannel video services are now being offered via MVPD’s, vMVPD’s, Device manufacturers, FASTS, and in some cases like Disney, even the media companies themselves. When you stack on 200+ a la carte streaming options, finding the content you want, and keeping it within budget, has never been so complex. What are the products, experiences, and partnerships that are best going to solve this paradox for consumers? Who is best positioned for success?

The Future of Local TV Distribution
Local broadcast television – particularly news and sports – still finds its way into many homes through MVPDs and over-the-air antennas. However, that same content is increasingly being delivered through virtual MVPDs, AVOD and other streaming platforms. How will local TV programming evolve to fit into an OTT world? How can local TV maximize the full potential of ATSC 3.0? How does local TV ensure it finds the audiences of the future?

Low latency streaming has always been crucial for live sports and now it’s becoming increasingly important for other applications like cloud gaming. As CBS Sports’ Jeff Gerttula put it, “Latency is about just finding the most efficient path from the raw feed to the consumer.” How can streaming architectures and workflows still improve latency levels, especially at scale? How can 5G be fully utilized in reducing latency for next-gen applications and video services?

How a service looks, feels and responds determines how much consumers will embrace it or run from it. Getting the design and user interface right is one thing, but maintaining consistency with apps across multitudes of devices, platforms and networks is another. What must video services do to ensure they stand out and differentiate without sacrificing usability? Once the balance is set, how can video services delivery consistent experiences in a fragmented landscape?

Targeted Streaming Services- Strategies for Success
While most of the chatter around the Streaming Wars has involved the competition between the world’s largest media companies and their multi billion dollar mega services, smaller media companies and a new crop of “streaming independents” have emerged that are super serving various content categories for passionate audiences. Some of these are building their businesses from the ground up, and some are reinventing their networks and brands for the streaming era. Where are these companies seeing success, and where are they not? What are the right monetization and distribution strategies?

Beyond the Content: Driving Engagement Through Your UX
Content is king and it’s the primary gravitational pull that attracts users to a video platform. But once consumers are in orbit, it’s crucial that the user experience keeps them there by making it as simple and painless to find the content they want (or just don’t know that they want yet). How can search and discovery be more intuitive without sacrificing functionality? What’s needed to make recommendations more relevant? How close is the industry to giving consumers seamless cross-platform, multi-screen navigation?
