Breakfast Briefing: Living with Giants

Seligman Theatre

08:00 – 08:45

The television industry is in the midst of an unprecedented, once-in-a-generation upgrade that includes the user experience, advertising, how content is distributed and how operations are managed. Major platform owners are leading the charge, and in some cases consolidating with other leaders. Meanwhile, global digital giants like Amazon, Netflix and now Apple want a bigger slice of the television pie. If you don’t have millions of subscribers and rich internal engineering resources, or investors ready to back loss-making services, how do you compete in this world? This special briefing starts with a high-level strategy debate and then dives into real-world solutions that help small/medium platform operators and channel owners live with, and compete against, the giants.
