What’s next for OTT?: Our upcoming DSLondon event

Digital Sport is delighted to announce that tickets are on sale for our OTT event! This event has been brought forward and will take place on the 9th March, with our ‘Look to the Olympic Games‘ set to take place at the end of March/beginning of April.

The OTT discussion will be hosted at Telefonica Digital with Vensy, a glorious venue to host a major discussion on the future of live streaming and broadcast at this particularly fascinating time for all involved.

At this event we want to look at how OTT and live streaming in sport continues to rise, with new broadcasters springing up to challenge the status quo and rights-holders going it alone to bring their content direct to consumer. Is streaming becoming something of the new normal?

Christmas 2019 saw Amazon Prime add Premier League fixture streaming to their tennis deals, producing coverage of football for the first time, which just goes to show how much OTT is starting to integrate itself into mainstream sport.

At our last OTT event we talked about the opportunities for broadcasters. This time around, we’ll be talking about where we go from here. What are the specific opportunities that OTT brings to sport? Should rights-holders be attempting to muscle in on this new trend, or should we consider that bandwagon jumping? Are we perhaps thinking about it too much, as maybe this is just a short-term trend that won’t truly kick off?

We’ll even talk about the opportunities for minority sports to go direct to consumer and not have to worry about linear broadcasters finding a slot in the schedule to run their highlights.

We’re delighted to announce that Trevor Evans, CEO & Founder of Stream Time, will be moderating the event, and we can also confirm that Tom Middleditch, Global Head of Digital at ELEVEN SPORTS, will be a panellist too. There’ll be more news on panellists to come in the next few weeks!

For those who have bought tickets for our Olympics event, the tickets purchased are still valid and details about the event will be announced in the next week as well. We’ve got some great news regarding venue and panellists to reveal very shortly, so don’t fear, that evening is still well and truly on course to be a great date for our calendar!

If you have any questions, would like to put forward a panellists or some content, or would like to be a partner for our events, please get in touch via james@digitalsport.co or chat to us on social media platforms as well.

We’re very excited to see you at our upcoming events, starting with OTT – Tickets can be bought below!
