Happy Together? How SVODs Have Changed The Game

Monday, January 28, 2019
1:30 PM - 2:30 PM
Fuse 2

The content ecosystem continues to evolve and despite claims that the sky is falling, audiences still tune in — in respectable numbers —to their favorite TV shows. And the influx of newer buyers with deep pockets that can shell out for both original content and acquisitions should be cause for rejoicing for producers and, yes, even networks and distributors. But as all sectors of “traditional” screen-based media are finding out, the new players are, through business models shaped in the digital era, rewriting the rules of the game. Can producers and content creators accept losing rights for global reach? Can networks and SVODs continue to exist as “frenemies” or, as more media companies with global reach extend into the direct-to-consumer market, will the competition heat up to the boiling point? Hear different perspectives on the immediate future of the screen scene in this top-level talk.
