Tim Davie started his new job as Director General of the BBC last week and amongst the many items in his in-tray will be what to do next with the BBC iPlayer. That’s the focus of OTT Question Time this week too where, together with Gulliver Smithers, CTO of RampRate and former VP Product Development at BBC Worldwide, Stuart Cleary, Chief Commercial Officer at Zattoo and Nathalie Lethbridge, Founder of Atonik Digital, we’ll discuss:
-- Who’s watching iPlayer now by age, gender, programming and device
-- The relative importance of attracting younger demographics to the platform
-- MyBBC, gathering data and CRM
-- The relationship between iPlayer, Britbox and the major SVODs
-- And whether iPlayer can ever be more than a catch-up service
OTT Question Time #16 – The Future of BBC iPlayer – will be streamed live via Zoom at 4pm (UK) on Thursday 10th September.
