Have the social platforms pivoted from frenemies to audience and revenue growth vehicles?

Broadcasters’ view of platforms like Youtube, Facebook, Snap and TikTok have matured. Far from being the enemy, social platforms are now being embraced as a promotional tool as well as a viewing platform to reach new audiences. Broadcasters are now focused on using social platforms both to market linear and digital content in addition to creating bespoke content that leverages the platforms’ audiences and commercial opportunity. This session will explore how broadcasters are collaborating with the tech businesses to reach new audiences and how the future of viewing is evolving.
