From iPlayer to YouTube to Netflix, and many more in between: the growth of VOD and OTT services in the past few years has been rapid, and shows no signs of stopping. Increasingly children and young people are turning to on-demand services for their entertainment – whether it’s a dedicated app or a streaming video website. This creates a wealth of opportunities for producers and IP holders, as well as the service providers themselves; but it also creates new challenges to ensure safety and quality, and to take advantage of the opportunities a bespoke digital service offers. Join commissioners from a variety of websites, broadcasters, and children’s apps, who’ll discuss what new content they’re looking for, what the benefits and pitfalls are of this growing market, and how you can be a part of its future.



This session begins with a presentation by Changemaker Rich Keith, Chief Revenue Officer, The Yogscast.
