Digital Policy Institute Webinar 11/16/16:

Disruption and Competition in the Consumer Video Market


Press Release:

The richest man in China has just made a bid to buy Don Clark Productions, reaffirming the adage that 'content is king.' Cable looks like it's finally going to experience head-on competition in more markets across the country if regulators approve AT&T's proposed acquisition of Time Warner. Putting premium content onto more screens and mobile devices is clearly where the video business is heading. But what does it all mean for consumers? Will they begin to experience never-before-possible content enhancements like virtual reality on mobile? What comes of the burgeoning market for over-the-top content? When will mobile platforms become the primary means for consumer video consumption? And how should we evaluate competition as multiple industries converge?
