Netflix and Amazing are continually disrupting movie and TV viewing habits and production cycles. Both of these companies have already received Golden Globe nominations and have traditional TV and cable companies wondering where the next blindside hit will come from. Other disruptors include Hulu, Maker Studios and YouTube.
YouTube is also trying to disrupt the music industry since millions of people use YouTube as their default music source. The initial music wars resulted in Spotify and other streaming services leaving Apple in the dust and forced the tech giant to play catch up and acquire Beats for $3 billion. Will Apple's new streaming service beat out Spotify? Will there be new disruptors launching in the coming years? How has all this uncertainty affected music artists and the overall industry? The panel speakers are: Marc Randolph (Co-founder of Netflix), Sam Wick (EVP of Business Development and Operations at Maker Studios), Andreas Ehn (Founding CTO of Spotify) and moderated by Bernie Cho (President of DFSB Kollective).
