The Future of Streaming: What’s Next?

February 7, 2022
11:00 AM - 11:45 AM PT
The past year saw a huge uptick in revenue and viewership for ad-supported video on demand (AVOD) platforms as well as the growth of free, ad-supported streaming television (FAST), while some predict that the subscription video on demand (SVOD) market should brace for a wave of customer cancellations in 2022 despite its continued growth. This panel of industry leaders will discuss the rapid growth and consumer adoption of AVOD and FAST streaming services as well as developments in the maturing SVOD market. How are consumer viewing habits evolving? How will different services distinguish themselves and attract loyal viewers or subscribers? Are AVOD services likely to get more “premium”? What are SVOD services doing to retain and grow subscribers? What innovations, business models and features will fuel growth in the marketplace?
