Key Themes


This year’s OTT Summit will pivot around three main themes – Strategy, Content & Technology.

With a year of unforeseen disturbances, the sports broadcasting market has been forced to reconsider and adapt. This has caused a rapid adoption of remote broadcast technology, a reconsidering of live right’s value, revisiting archival footage, as well as rebuilding commercial and marketing strategies amongst many other changes.

Strategy

With the absence of live sports both rights holders and broadcasters were forced to re-evaluate long standing strategies. A holistic approach to commercial and marketing is needed more now than ever before.

Topics include:

  • Monetisation models
  • Social media
  • Share of wallet
  • Reach vs revenue
  • Rights valuation
  • Marketing & subscriber acquisition

Content

Technology

Lockdown exposed the need to accelerate development and adoption of technology for the purposes of sports broadcast.
