Amazon, Dish, PBS, TiVo, and more to speak at Parks Associates’ inaugural conference on OTT, pay TV, and digital media
Video OTT and pay-TV research from Parks Associates shows that consumer perception of a poor value proposition in pay TV remains the top trigger for changing, downgrading, or cancelling services. Among households that have made pay-TV changes in past 12 months, one-third of cord cutters and 10% of switchers or cord shavers plan to use paid OTT services as a substitute or alternative for pay TV. The research firm will discuss the future landscape of OTT, pay TV, and digital media and strategies to enhance the viewer value proposition at its inaugural Future of Video: OTT, Pay TV, and Digital Media conference, December 10-12, in Marina del Rey, California.
“The primary driver for pay-TV cancellation and downgrades continues to revolve around pricing and perceived value. While some consumers consciously plan to use OTT video services to address the absence of pay-TV content, most consider each offering on its own merits,” said Parks Associates. “The deeper issue is in the influence that OTT video services have on what consumers consider to be a ‘good’ value. When video services with good quality are available for under $15, it forces operators to justify an $80 pay-TV bill.”
Future of Video will provide insights on viewer behaviors and preferences and the challenges for the video industry in meeting the expectations of today’s connected consumers. Sessions will highlight in-depth consumer and industry research on OTT services, the value of content, technology innovations, and best strategies for building successful video services.
Sponsors for Future of Video include MediaKind, TiVo, Massive, and Premion.
