Watch on demand - CTV industry insiders discuss current hot topics in streaming, hosted by OTT.X

The second edition of OTT.X Buzz brought together:

  • Kirby Grines, Founder & CEO of 43Twenty (moderator)

  • Fred Godfrey, Co-Founder & CEO of Origin

  • Gene Pao, EVP, Strategy & Digital for Shout! Factory

  • Elizabeth Parks, President & CMO for Parks Associates

  • Michael Smith, Chief Marketing Officer for NPR

Moderated by the one and only Kirby Grines, the panel enjoyed a riveting discussion that covered a handful of hot topics currently resonating in the world of Connected TV and CTV advertising, including:

  • Will streaming’s ‘great re-bundling’ save Hollywood as we know it?

  • HBO shows coming to Netflix, what this means and why that matters.

  • Digital TV Research: FAST Revenue Tripling to $18 Billion by 2028 - and why this is happening.

What do we mean by this?
