New business models have challenged longstanding ones. Technology is creating new behavior. Linear experiences are no longer the rule. Creators are coloring outside the lines. Brands are shifting budgets. Stock prices are falling—Television has been hacked—It’s TVnext.

  • Television Hacked? Media Hacked: The Great Disruption

    Watch now

    We’re amidst an era of great disruption in the media landscape. Gone are the days when advertising fit into a finite set of “media containers.” We now have infinite permutations and possibilities to create and deliver experiences to people from brands. This “great disruption” is fraught with opportunities—but only if we take a more modern approach to the world of advertising.

He's in the unique position of covering the video revolution while participating in it. In this fireside chat, Stelter discusses what is changing -- and just as importantly what isn't changing -- about media.

  • Disruptive Influence: The MCN Challenge - Kickoff

    A new generation of talent with massive reach is creating digital content—and they’re re-defining influence.

On the TVnext stage, we’ll review their success and debate the state of influence today.

But what does it all mean? We’ve got all four players on stage to tell us just that—plus how advertising needs to change if it's to survive the era of ad blocking.

  • “Priceless:” A Social Experiment

    Watch now

    In 2015, “television” is the entire universe of video experiences at our fingertips. Whether watching a 90-second video on a train ride to work or hunkering down for an epic binge-watching session on Netflix, the promise of on-demand, instant content is now a reality for audiences everywhere. But what happens when we flip the notion of unlimited consumer control on its head and force people to ration the resources of an on-demand world? We found out in the TVnext Token Timer social experiment.

    According to Forrester, over the next 10 years, they expect that 50% of adults under 32 will not pay for TV, at least not the way we think of it today. As cord cutting continues to rise, how is Hulu positioned to capture those audiences moving away from traditional TV viewing? What is their plan for audience growth and how are they planning to up their game with new and acquired content. Will traditional TV be able to survive?

  • Are Live Sports Still Appointment Viewing?

    Watch now

    It's an on-demand, time-shifted, and DVR-friendly world out there, and our audience’s expectations have been set accordingly: consuming video is an activity that's squarely on their terms. For years now, this has been the norm, with the world of live sporting events being one of the main exceptions. From March Madness to the Super Bowl, the perception is that sports are one of the last vestiges of appointment viewing, freed from the disruptive forces of the media landscape. But is that in fact still true? And how are media outlets reconciling making big investments in sports programming among shifting consumer behaviors?
