The evolution of content consumption has driven seismic shifts in the media industry over the last five years. As consumers increasingly watch media outside of the living room, personalised according to their own schedule and on their chosen device, content providers have had to make substantial investments in delivery infrastructure and application development to keep up. We’ve seen the rise of some very advanced TV Everywhere and OTT solutions that meet audience needs – but what has it taken to get to this point? What is going on under the bonnet? And, perhaps more importantly, what’s next?

What are the challenges and pitfalls in delivering content across such a diverse range of devices? How have broadcasters and pay TV providers tech stacks had to change? What have we learned that we can take forward into delivering the next generation of OTT services? What does it mean to deliver a truly best in class product when multiplatform functionality is rapidly becoming a standard feature? How can services stand out and win the battle for screen time – whichever screen that might be?

The panel will include a range of technical and operational executives from within the major studios, home entertainment, pay TV and broadcasting as well as leading tech providers. We are delighted to have confirmed panellists representing Channel 4 and Babcock with more to be announced very shortly.
