  • The Streaming Wave in 2018: To Dive, Duck or Surf? Special Report & Webinar Package
    Little else has upended the world of TV more than the advent of the streaming service, and it is not without its revenue challenges – which will only intensify in 2018. Together with the wealth of outstanding programming have come new approaches to revenue, in both the subscription model as well as the ad-supported version. Many industry pros say that in 2018, networks will need their own streaming services to survive, but questions around net neutrality, scaled viewership, and more make this a complicated directive. Cynopsis will break down the risks and rewards so you’re best positioned for success. Following the Special Report, we will hold a sponsored webinar for senior-level leaders to explain how they view and are meeting these new opportunities. Feb/March 2018

  • The 2018 Road to NewFronts
    This package will kick off in March 2018 as a weekly guide that handicaps the new contenders in the NewFronts marketplace, which was created to connect native digital content with brand marketers. We’ll provide the latest updates in content, events, experiential stunts, and of course, what advertisers are looking for this season. During the NewFront presentations themselves we will go daily, to boil down for readers the most critical news about the events, renewals, new programming, and fresh research that comes out of this annual gathering. And after the parties are over and the Tito’s has been drunk, we will wrap it all up in a smart, concise analysis. March-May 2018.
