Are consumers really deserting linear television?

On Monday 12th September at 13:00 – 14:00 in the IBC Content Everywhere Hub we have our own industry expert Bhavesh Vaghela, CMO taking part in the panel session hosted by David Lowen, Honorary Secretary – Royal Television Society. Alongside Bhavesh on the panel will be Jan Lindquist, Senior Product Engineer – VisualOn and Steve Langdon, Director of Strategic Media Consulting – Ooyala.

You can learn all about what audience data exists to support the assertion that “millennials” and other demographics are deserting linear television? Where is the independent and authoritative audience data being collected?

What does the data tell us about changing viewing habits and how stakeholders need to respond? Consumers are actually increasingly embracing a mix of linear free-to-air, pay-TV and OTT. In particular, traditional operators still have the edge over OTT insurgents when it comes to live TV and sports.

Drawing on a variety of independent data, the panel will explore how viewing habits are changing, the extent to which consumers are viewing OTT to supplement pay-TV, the emergence of “dip-in-and-out” and the implications for business models and customer service strategies.

Panellists will also discuss how data collected across a service’s infrastructure can be exploited to expand audience, reach and consumer engagement and drive profitability.
