Content protection and multiscreen television solutions provider NAGRA is once again teaming up with international research and strategy consultancy MTM to launch the 2019 Pay-TV Innovation Forum.
The global research programme will explore the biggest challenges facing pay-TV service providers and content owners today, and how they can identify new opportunities to transform and future-proof their business in the years to come. Key topics to be addressed in the 2019 edition include:
“In the fourth year of the programme, we are strategically introducing new themes and analysing their impact on the current state of the pay-TV industry,” said Simon Trudelle, Senior Director Product Marketing at NAGRA. “This expanded focus will provide operators and content owners with a concise view of the current trends, innovations and investment strategies that are shaping the industry both regionally and globally.”
“As disruption and competition in the pay-TV industry continue to intensify, operators and content owners need to carefully consider the strategies, business models and services that will enable them to maintain growth,” said Jon Watts, Managing Partner, MTM.
The 2019 programme will run from March to September, and include in-depth interviews, a global survey with leading industry executives, as well as a special report on the growth of premium sports OTT services around the world. It will also include regional seminars, designed to encourage focused discussions among executives to identify the key challenges and opportunities facing the industry. The flagship final report, which summarises key findings from the programme, will be launched at IBC in September 2019.
Launched in 2016 by NAGRA and MTM, the Pay-TV Innovation Forum initiative seeks to explore innovation and growth across the pay-TV industry during a period of significant change and disruption.
