Distribution channels were already undergoing seismic shifts before the global pandemic accelerated fundamental changes. This session will look at the latest trends of windows and holdbacks, global distribution strategies and opportunities (from the perspective of both global US-based platforms and regional services overseas), and shifts in bargaining power between streamers and device manufacturers. We will also discuss best practices and promising experiments in VOD monetization as well as the future of in-person experiences such as film festivals and movie theaters.
