This session will feature leading researchers from existing and soon-to-launch D2C services, as they describe their research focus and key learnings. Panelists include:
- Mike Bloxham, SVP, Global Media & Entertainment, Magid
- Howard Shimmel, President, Janus Strategy and Insights (Moderator)
- Julie DeTraglia, VP and Head of Research & Insights, Hulu
