    Channels and Competition: Overhauling the Nation’s Sport Media Landscape 

    Growing consumer acceptance of OTT services has revitalised Australia’s sport media landscape and ignited a battle for streaming supremacy. New domestic and global challengers are catering to a world of online content consumers, providing alternatives to local commercial broadcasting giants and placing pressure on local rights negotiations. Rights holders are also thinking differently about how they distribute their content to continue elevating consumer expectations for accessibility, affordability, and interactivity. In this Session, we ask whether the way Australians consume sports content has changed irreversibly. We will break down the ramifications for sport franchises, media entities, and advertisers alike, providing delegates with a more complete picture of the nation’s unfolding sports media matrix.
