AD SUPPORTED GROWTH DEEP DIVE: THE KEYS TO BUILDING (AND MONETIZING) A LOYAL AUDIENCE

With the subscription market showing signs of maturation over the past year, the rush towards ad supported services was in full gear. However, competition amongst free ad supported services has grown fierce as well, with early device agnostic leaders, now having to compete with Smart TVs and STBs that have all seemingly launched their own services.  Amongst all of the noise, where is there opportunity for growth and differentiation? Does it make sense for channel providers and content owners to work with every platform in the marketplace, or are there only a few services that are worth the time and energy of legal/tech departments? Last but not least, how can ad inventory be more efficiently managed to monetize growing engagement levels across the ecosystem?

SLICING AND DICING: PROGRAMMING DISTRIBUTION IN THE NEW MULTI PLATFORM WORLD

One of the biggest challenges of 2022 for entertainment companies is balancing their content portfolios.  On the one hand, the industry is clearly moving toward streaming, so budget and resources need to be appropriately aligned with their D2C efforts.  On the other hand, the Cable TV ecosystem is still driving the lions share of profits, so partnerships with MVPD’s still need to be prioritized. The result is a fragmented ecosystem that is challenging for content providers to support, and conversely difficult for viewers to find the programs that they want to watch. How can content providers best navigate through the times?  How can social networks and emerging platforms like Fortnite, Roblox, and Twitch be used?
