Execs from A+E, Netflix, HOOQ Slated for CASBAA OTT Summit


SINGAPORE: CASBAA’s fourth OTT Summit will feature a series of panels, with executives from the Asian region weighing in on how traditional media is responding to the digital challenges of today’s television landscape.

The CASBAA OTT Summit 2017 will explore a range of topics, including trends in Asian viewership, whether OTT is a game-changer in sports, how traditional media is adapting, the synergy between OTT and multiscreen and how to use data as metrics for success. Some of the executives attending include Discovery Networks Asia Pacific’s Winradit Kolasastraseni, A+E Networks Asia’s Prem Kamath and David Schonfeld, Netflix’s Yu-Chuang Kuek, HOOQ’s Ravi Vora, Twitter’s Maya Hari and 21st Century Fox’s Joe Welch, among others.

“We are delighted to be returning to Singapore for the fourth edition of CASBAA’s OTT Summit,” said Christopher Slaughter, the CEO of CASBAA. “While traditional media incumbents remain dominant, there’s no denying the growing impact of over-the-top video services, and how they are transforming viewing habits throughout the region. We have been saying it for years, but it’s now increasingly apparent that OTT is truly a big part of pay TV’s future.”
