Improving User Experience with Content Discovery
March 18, 2015
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


RSG Media will be taking part in a webinar hosted by FierceCable entitled “Improving User Experience with Content Discovery” on Thursday, March 26 at 11 am.

Due to the growth of multiscreen video services, viewers have more choices for video content than ever before. However, finding that content, whether online or via linear means is difficult and time-consuming. A fragmented online video environment and a multitude of devices by which to access video content make the content discovery experience a frustrating one.

Content discovery issues do not just affect viewers; they can have a noticeable impact on a video provider's bottom line--such as lost advertising revenue or subscriber churn.

In this webinar, we look at the current content discovery environment, and discuss solutions that either are already on the market or will be available soon, that will improve the viewer experience and drive higher revenues.
