1. How do prequels drive engagement?

From Prey to Better Call Saul to House Of The Dragon, prequels are having a major moment right now. Arguably, prequels are home runs for streaming services.

2. Voice assistants are losing user trust because they don’t know where to watch

A recent survey commissioned by Reelgood aimed to answer this question: How much are customers bothered when their voice assistant fails to help them find the entertainment content they’re looking for? The answer: A lot

Partnering with Reelgood, voice assistant providers can eliminate this common pain point and provide more functionality – and less frustration – for their customers.

5. IBC Recap

Did you make it out to IBC in Amsterdam? We did, and here are the main insights we brought back with us…

  • The streaming metadata supply chain is still in its infancy, suffering from a lack of standardization and disparate technical implementations. The market relies on a metadata supply chain built decades ago for the 14-Day Broadcast Guide. 
  • EIDR (third-party ID system) is making moves but will need help from its enabling members.
  • Amazon (AWS) and Google (Android) are investing to be the next-generation platforms. Will they succeed?
  • Everyone loves Fast Channels. Consumers get the benefit of free TV… Studios get visibility for their deep catalog titles and advertising dollars flow. So what role should metadata aggregators like Reelgood play in this ecosystem?
  • Enriching Metadata has gone tech. Many different vendors create in-content tagging using AI and ML to automate the creation of large datasets that better describe what we see in TV & Movies. An exciting area to watch.
