Session 1: OTT Skinny Bundles Are Getting Fatter – Is Pay TV Replacement Attainable?
By mid-2017, almost 25% off US households will have “cut the cord” (including 6% who never had it) and will no longer be paying a bill to a traditional Pay TV service provider such as a cable, fiber-to-the-home (FTTH), or satellite company. Skinny bundles started out as low-cost options for cord-cutters, or add-on content for niche demographics. But they are getting fatter, and in some cases becoming true Pay TV replacement strategies. FuboTV started out targeting the Hispanic millennial market, and later bolted on major broadcast channels to provide an almost complete offering for soccer-watching cord-cutters and cord-nevers. Many other pure-play content shops are following the same path. Adding to the mayhem, traditional Pay TV MVPDs, broadcasters, and programmers are introducing their own skinny bundles meant to attract both cord-cutters and cord-enhancers. Once positioned as “complementary” products to traditional pay-TV services, industry executives have been forced to admit that offerings such as Dish’s Sling TV and AT&T’s DirecTV Now are being marketed as “direct replacements for cable and satellite TV.” Combined with device-based OTT strategies such as Sony’s PlayStation Vue, online giants like YouTube TV, and now industry consortium-based Hulu TV, cord-cutters now have a cornucopia of options to choose from. The question is, where does this all lead? In many ways the future of the skinny, and getting fatter, bundle parallels the future prospects of the television industry as a whole. Let’s start the day by hearing from the experts where they think it’s headed.

WHERE:
New York Hilton Midtown
Helge Høibraaten, CEO Vimond, is speaking at Streaming Media East –  a conference and expo dedicated entirely to the business, technology, and content of online video, in the panel debating “The Business Of Skinny Bundles and Consumer Choice”.
In recent months, Pay TV carriers and streaming providers like Hulu and YouTube have introduced “skinny bundles” in an effort to prevent cord-cutters and/or attract younger, price conscious consumers. But many of these offerings don’t provide much real choice or only leave providers with slim margins due to high carriage fees. This panel of video industry experts will discuss the latest research on consumer channel priorities and pricing analysis and provide perspectives on what types of bundles consumers want to watch.

Speakers:
Moderator: Jonathan Hurd, Director – Altman Vilandrie & Company
Helge Hoibraaten, CEO – Vimond
Xavier Kochhar, Founder, CEO – The Video Genome Project
Magnus Svensson, Media Solution Consultant – Eyevinn Technology
