The value of sports content remains strong, with broadcast revenue growing in emerging sectors such as niche sporting events and e-sports. But the industry is undergoing massive changes driven by new technologies and business models — with some sectors under duress. Securing live sports revenue is critical to the pay-TV industry’s cable and satellite packages, which have been decreasing year over year as sports leagues pursue new direct-to-consumer OTT models.
“It’s a pleasure to speak alongside some of the industry’s foremost experts that see firsthand the challenges facing sports broadcasting today,” Bolden said. “The SportsPro OTT Summit USA event serves as the preeminent venue for discussing the importance of collaborative anti-piracy efforts such as DRM and watermarking to prevent stream ripping and similar crimes that significantly impact bottom lines.”
Featuring more than 50 sessions, 80 thought leaders and thousands of peers, OTT Summit USA 2021 focuses on three main themes – strategy, content and technology. To register for the event, visit https://usa.sportspro-ott.com/registration.
