Panel | RIP Broadcast TV?
Once the totemic gatekeepers of the commercial television industry, linear broadcast networks and their owned or affiliated local stations now stand at the brink of obsolescence, as consumers rapidly migrate to more bountiful streaming, on-demand and any-device viewing environments – ripe with choice and free of constrictions. We debate how (and if) broadcast TV can survive and potentially evolve from here.

Panel | Form Factors
The advent of streaming TV has brought with it a litany of acronyms (SVOD, AVOD, FAST, vMVPD, oh my!), and parsing the differences between them increasingly approaches futility. But important business model viabilities and crucial consumer interest levels lurk within these new industry definitions – some with surprisingly traditional and durable roots.

Panel | Live Sports: The Last Unbundle?
The migration of live sports telecasts to streaming-first platforms is well underway, and with it - quite possibly - the erosion of the last pillar of viability propping up the traditional MVPD linear TV bundle. As sports and other live events shift distribution modes more directly to the consumer, we discuss the possible effects to the streaming landscape.
