The Next TV Guide will be inserted into the July 16th issues of both B&C and Multichannel News. It will serve as best practices and as an overview of all aspects of the ecosystem of players that provide the critical pieces for the delivery of online and mobile video.
The Next TV weekly eNewsletter will distill vital OTT and Digital Video updates and analysis. Curated by NewBay Media editors, the eNewsletter will also feature summaries explaining why the top stories are important to television professionals.
"Next TV Summit" will follow the format of B&C's and Multichannel News' other popular events and feature keynote interviews and panels with the brightest minds in the industry from the most innovative companies. The event will also feature exhibitors, ad agencies, venture capitalists, apps developers, and programmers in the OTT and digital video space. Speakers will provide insights on the current state of the industry, future business models, and advice on how to overcome today's challenges in engaging audiences on new platforms.
"Innovative content deals are happening every day across new platforms, and this growth will continue in the foreseeable future," says Louis Hillelson, VP/Group Publishing Director, Broadcasting & Cable.
