Amazon, LG Electronics-Zenith R&D,, Paramount Streaming, and VIZIO to Keynote at annual Future of Video

Parks Associates today welcomes industry leaders from the streaming, content, and video industries to the fifth annual Future of Video: OTT, Pay TV and Digital Media, December 12-14 in LA at the Marina Del Ray Marriott. With keynotes from Amazon, LG Electronics-Zenith R&D,, Paramount Streaming, and VIZIO, Future of Video addresses the saturation and increased competition in the streaming video market, the shift of media rights to streaming, the role of bundles in subscription services, and the strategic shift in new partnerships, especially related to advertising and interactive experiences.

“More than half of US broadband households now combine one of the Big 3 services with at least one other subscription OTT service to form their online video service portfolio,” said Elizabeth Parks, President and CMO, Parks Associates. “Our latest survey finds 20% of US internet households now have eight or more services. The market is very different than it was just a few years ago, and our sessions throughout the event will address these disruptions.”

Future of Video sponsors include Adeia, FPT Software, Quickplay, SymphonyAI Media, Comcast Technology Solutions, Metrological, MediaKind, and Friend MTS.
