Thriving As An Independent In A World Of OTT Acquisitions

TOPIC: Today’s streaming channel menus are riddled with former independents recently acquired by major studios. Pluto, Tubi, Xumo and others are all now backed by majors like Viacom and FOX. Where does this leave the remaining independent channels and how will they survive and thrive in the battle for audience and awareness?
