Pioneering Pubcasters in the Brave New World of VOD

Tuesday, February 13, 2018
10:15 AM - 11:00 AM

Notably in Scandinavia, they’re putting more and more resources into their VOD platforms—sometimes championing them over linear. So far, the results are showing terrific benefits for both the broadcasters and their audiences, but these offerings are creating complications for content creators and distributors in terms of commercial viability and exposure. The future is now, but what does it look like from the perspective of all parties involved?
