Taking into account the integral role MVPD’s play in the global content distribution ecosystem, NATPE is launching a broad new initiative to embrace this industry sector that will continue throughout 2021 and beyond. In addition to forming a soon to be named MVPD committee and conducting special MVPD-focused keynotes and sessions during the NATPE Virtual Miami conference in January (19-21), there is a kickoff event planned for December 15.

“Content Distribution on a Global Scale: MVPD’s and the Worldwide Content Market” will take a deep dive to explore where the industry’s global MVPD content sector is going, during the next NATPE V-Front presentation. Hosted by TV5Monde USA, the free, one-hour (1pm/EST – 10am/PST) virtual event on December 15 will address this topic and more.

Moderated by Horowitz Research’s President and longtime MVPD observer, Howard Horowitz, the session will feature comments and insights from Verizon Consumer Group’s Chief Content Officer, Erin McPherson; Liberty Latin America’s VP Chief Programming Officer, Stephane David; and Virgin Media, Liberty Global’s Head of Programming, David Bouchier.

“TV5Monde is pleased to support NATPE in launching this new MVPD initiate and hosting this exciting first event. With the executives in charge of content acquisition for three global MVPD’s Erin, Stephane and David fielding Howard’s probing questions, I anticipate a very lively and informative discussion that provides a wide range of strategic insights,”  said Chair of the NATPE MVPD committee and COO of TV5 USA, Patrice Courtaban.
