FAST - TV 2.0

Has the sheer availability of content and the fragmented delivery made it more difficult for brands to engage with viewers? 

Tuesday 7 December @ The Watershed

The FAST – TV 2.0 format will include a round table where each panelist will have a few minutes to speak about how the internet has changed television forever. They’ll address the benefits and challenges that the internet brings to content delivery and consumption.

To give you even more of a teaser, some of the questions that will be posed to the panel include: Have the incumbent behemoths like Netflix, Amazon and Disney changed the media landscape forever? Is ad-supported linear TV dead or just transforming? Has the sheer availability of content and the fragmented delivery made it more difficult for brands to engage with viewers? What is the answer to these challenging questions? Can technology offer a solution?

Join live from Bristol on the 7th of December at 19:00 for FAST – TV 2.0. followed by a live Q&A. Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of the Future of Television!
