At this week’s OTT Question Time we’re talking about finance in the technology, media and telecoms sector and will be asking – as well as answering – questions including:

  • Mergers and Acquisition deal flow been accelerating the technology, media & telecoms space. Will that continue as we try to exit the mother of all economic downturns?
  • Who will emerge as the winners and who will end up losing? 
  • Will global scale still be a key

At this week’s OTT Question Time we’re talking about the future of SVOD where we’ll be looking into:

  • SVOD take-up and viewing, in different territories and across demographics, compared to linear, time-shifted, AVOD, TVOD and PVOD
  • How these trends have changed over the past 5 years and since this year’s coronavirus pandemic
  • The average number of SVODs in households across the UK, Europe and North America
  • Consumer behaviour including dipping in and out of specific

Together with Simon Thomas of GroupM, Leon Siotis of SpotX and Alan Wolk of TVREV we talked about why, when TV and OTT viewing is soaring, broadcaster advertising revenues have plummeted. We also discussed regional differences between the UK, Europe and the US and the prospects for an advertising recovery later this year and in 2021.

Together with Bjarne Andre Myklebust of NRK, Kerensa Samanidis of M&E Digital Consulting and Allan McLennan of PADEM Media Group, we discussed the effect of the various national lockdowns on broadcaster, operator, pay-TV and service-provider roadmaps. Specifically, their operational, product, strategic and technical plans and how they've rapidly evolved in Q1 and Q2 2020.

At this week’s OTT Question Time we’re looking into a paradox. Whilst TV and OTT viewing is soaring, broadcaster advertising revenues have plummeted. Is this simply a result of the pandemic – and the associated hits to our national economies – or is there a more nuanced picture? Are there regional differences between the UK, Europe and the US? Which industry sectors are still advertising? And what are the prospects for an advertising bounce-back later

Together with Julie Mitchelmore of A+E Networks, Peter Docherty of ThinkAnalytics and Richard Cooper of Ampere Analysis, we discussed the huge rise in TV and OTT viewing since the COVID-19 national lockdowns started. We also talked about the content that's being watched, the people that are watching it, how titles are presented and surfaced to audiences, the number of SVODs per household and the sustainability of this level of TV viewing.
