In this episode of OTT Question Time we went down under! Together with Kym Niblock, Chief Product & Information Officer at TVNZ, Holly Knill, Group Director, IP & Content Products at Foxtel, and Sam Hall, Chief Content & Commercial Officer at Fetch TV, we explored FTA / Pay-TV / SVOD trends in Australia / NZ and the wider potential impacts of those experiences. For example:
- Has the pandemic led to a renewal of trust between audiences and PSBs and if so, is this a sustainable phenomenon or do we expect the effect to wear off over time?
- What might this mean (if anything) for PSB funding and concomitant BVOD?
- Content aggregation, skinny bundles, consumer entertainment budgets and associated pay models
- And the perennial question that is the future of set-top boxes
