2013 is arguably the tipping point for the digital disruption of the television industry. While broadcast networks are seeing double-digital percentage ratings decreases, Netflix and Amazon are producing their own content. As time-shifted viewing increases and we view content on countless types of screens, old ways of measuring viewership seem less and less reliable. This panel lead by Roundarch Isobar will examine the disruption of television from the point of view of the leaders who are leading the innovation in the television space. They'll examine the challenges networks face from digital in the coming years, and how digital agencies and startups can take advantage of it.
