Welcome to Miami: 2020 Super Bowl LIV Experience Reflections

It's the biggest event for U.S. viewers and one of the top two or three sporting events on the annual global calendar. This year the Super Bowl took over Miami and Fox Sports used the event as an opportunity to showcase new technologies, tell the story of the game in new ways, and deliver for its advertisers. The city of Miami, meanwhile, was in full activation mode from South Beach to Hard Rock Stadium. Execs involved discuss the event, the production, and the legacy of Super Bowl LIV.

Living with Piracy

The promise of digital delivery and OTT business plans run into one constant issue: piracy and the way it strips away revenue opportunities and weakens the entire ecosystem. Every day there are new ways to deal with piracy but every day there are also new forms of attack. How can your organization tackle piracy in an efficient and effective way? Is learning to live with piracy the only way forward? And if not, how can rights owners, rights holders, and distribution platforms work together?
