The Future of Streaming Video with Damian Pelliccione

When we plopped down in front of Netflix, we often forget how massive the video streaming revolution really was. It wasn't long ago that TV watching was limited to whatever was being broadcast live over the air or on cable. If technology has taught us anything, it's that change is the only constant. What will the next revolution in streaming video be and how can you capitalize on it? My guest for this episode is Damian Pelliccione. He is the Cofounder and CEO of Revry, which has been called the Netflix for LGBTQ shows. Revry focuses on content that has been overlooked by mainstream streaming services. Considering they have 21 million minutes streamed and reached over 50 million homes, it sounds like they're crushing it. Damian is here to illuminate for us what marketers need to know about OTT and streaming, how to connect with Millennial and Gen Z audiences and the future of broadcast advertising and interactive content.
