The Future of Sports Distribution

It’s been said that the sports rights deals that are negotiated over the next few years, will shape the industry for the next decade. With that being said, there are a number of question marks as to how the industry will shake out.  Which streaming services and platforms are best positioned to capitalize? Where does it make sense for right holders to go D2C instead of licensing out their content? Which strategy- aggregation or a la carte- holds the most promise in capturing market share? And when factoring in technology and overall reach- when will streaming services be ready to take on premium, exclusive rights deals?

Panel: Playing Defense - The Fight Against Piracy

Sports rights are expensive, so it goes without saying that media organizations and rights holders need to do everything they can to protect their agreements. How can content providers and rights holders protect themselves from bad actors?  To what extent is it even possible to prevent footage from being shared and distributed on social platforms? And what are some of the latest tools and technologies that are helping to keep content secure?

There are no shortage of ways that streaming services can make money, and most providers are diversifying their strategies across multiple different models.  What is proving to be most successful?  What pricing options- be it games, seasons, or annual subscriptions, are proving to be fan favorites?

Panel: Reinventing Fan Engagement Through Data and Analytics

In the era of streaming, data is everything.  On one hand, it can of course serve your fans with additional real time stats on all of their favorite players and teams, and on the other, it can provide you with enriching KPI’s that can help you best serve your customers and fanbase. But in a world with so much information available at your fingertips, which are the data points that sports streaming services should be most focused on? How can you use that data to personalize the experience for your fanbase and keep them aware of everything you have to offer? And what role will emerging trends like AI and 5G have in enabling fans to discover, watch, and share content?

Watch parties. Augmented Reality. Fantasy. Social. Betting. Streaming Video is revolutionizing the way that sports are being consumed at home.

AGENDA

Wednesday, April 21

Welcome to LATAM day! While the North American market is leading the way, the Latin American sports broadcasting industry is also looking at OTT as an opportunity for the future. That being said, every market has its own idiosyncrasies that require different business models and strategies. So what’s the best way to get started? Also, how can you make sure you’re getting a return on your investment? Our LATAM Day will provide sessions in Spanish AND in Portuguese to dive deep into the answers to these questions and more.
 

10:00AM-11:00AM ET
OTT Sports 101: What Do You Need to Launch a Service (Portuguese)

This panel intends to discuss not only how to start an OTT service, but also how to differentiate yourself from competitors. What are the idiosyncrasies of the Brazilian market? Let's get those answers.
