Thoughts on the Future of TV- The State of Quality Content

When it comes to the world of TV-quality video content–the professionally produced shows and movies that largely comprise the business of TV–the pace of disruption has been blinding. Sparked by the rise of millennials; the diffusion of new distribution and device options; and technology innovations that democratized content development, quantum viewing is now the appropriate paradigm for understanding today’s TV viewing behaviors.

The combination of rapid advancements in technology, a lassiez-faire M&A environment, the coming of age of Millennials, and globalization has created an environment of uncertainty as to the future of content creation, distribution, and monetization. Quality content will remain vital to the success of the television industry, especially now that distribution is no longer limited to broadcast or legacy pay-TV.
