Streaming TV consumers are increasingly embracing Free Ad Supported TV (FAST) A recent survey by Morning Consult shows that consumers who opt to watch linear channels on Fast platforms such as the Roku, Pluto TV and Peacock do so for two key reasons: They love the content available on these channels. Many are rediscovering some of the classic shows and movies, while others, especially the younger viewers are exploring and falling in love with retro content for the first time. They prefer paying less than they would need to for premium services and SVOD and don’t mind watching ads. Subscription fatigue and the cost burden are forcing a growing number of audiences to go FAST and enjoy the advantages of the new age linear channels.

SVOD still leads the OTT market, but consumers are finding out what we've predicted all along: Cord-cutting won't save them money over cable and satellite if every service costs them another $10, $20, or even $60 a month. So they're turning to free ad-supported television (FAST) and other ad-supported models for an alternative to increasingly pricey SVOD services. We'll look at how content owners and platforms can thrive in the growing ad-supported streaming space..
The OTT industry is exploding, with the “streaming wars” of 2019-2020, a quaint expression of pre-pandemic big media company positioning for the future of television as we once knew it. Fast-forwarding - or skipping - to 2021, all the big players are well-positioned (save for the short-lived short-content firm Quibi). Hordes of smaller players are either relaunching (Fandor), developing new audiences (Passionflix) or developing new audience experiences altogether. Niche content is not just for YouTube or Facebook any more; sports, film, cultural and library content abounds at wildly differentiated subscription tiers. In short, OTT services have expanded during the pandemic, and now threaten to overtake the traditional Pay TV model altogether. This panel explores how major players package and distribute their content for on-demand and smart TV services, how they are signing deals and exploiting their own content libraries and the technology foundation necessary to make it happen.
