"This is a great follow up to our inaugural event last year, and I couldn't be more excited about the significant amount of growth we were able to achieve, particularly across streaming video providers and ad supported OTT channels. There's significant interest in the industry in how Pay TV and OTT are coming together to create a better value and experience, so we're excited to further build upon this intersection in future events," stated Kevin Gray, Event Director.
