Thursday January 29, 2015

EVPs at A+E, Bravo, Time Warner, Viacom, & Warner Bros Share 5 Strategies to Transform Digital Entertainment
Some of the most powerful architects of change within the digital entertainment industry convened to share strategies designed not simply to survive but to thrive in a world of diverse content creation, consumption, and distribution. 

The all-star panel, moderated by Time Warner Inc. Chief Marketing Officer nbsp;Kristen O’Hara and titled “The Entertainment Ecosystem,” was held at the 2014 CDO Summit at Time Warner in New York City on April 23, 2014.

Some tweetable quotes from our panelists:
  • Digital things are no longer the leftovers: what we don’t want to put on air” – Lisa Hsia
  • You want to buy something once, own it in the cloud, and be able to access it anywhere, anytime.” – Thomas Gewecke
Watch the video for 5 ways to transform digital entertainment:
1. Allow tech and content to collaborate
2. Show traditional programmers and talent the value of digital
3. Do a cost/benefit analysis on unorthodox partnerships
4. Cooperate on universal standards
5. Grab digital talent before someone else does

Participants included, from left to right in the video above, moderator Kristen O’Hara, Chief Marketing Officer at Time Warner Inc.; Thomas Gewecke, Chief Digital Officer and Executive Vice President of Strategy and Business Development at Warner Bros.; Dan Suratt, Executive Vice President of Digital Media and Business Development at A&E Networks; Kristin Frank, Executive Vice President at Connected Content Group (MTV, VH1, CMT, LOGO at Viacom); and Lisa Hsia, Executive Vice President of Digital at Bravo and Oxygen Media.
