MCNs: The Next-Generation Media Companies
Over the last few years, YouTube has seen a radical transformation, becoming a legitimate platform for professional content creators to engage with viewers. A new breed of companies called multi-channel networks (MCNs) are thriving on YouTube and gathering huge audiences that are bigger even than those on cable TV. MCNs are being called the future of entertainment and are poised to be the next generation media titans. But what will it take for these companies to truly crossover and how will they disrupt traditional entertainment models?
In this session, AllThingsD’s Peter Kafka will interview veteran media executive Ynon Kreiz of Maker Studios to discuss the multi-channel model, who is building the next big media companies, and the future of online video.
