For TV networks, these developments present both opportunities and challenges. Technology provides numerous channels that networks can leverage to expand their viewership, and build stronger bonds with their consumers.

Article | April 11, 2020

Ever since the adoption of VR gaming to the gaming market, it sure has seen upheavals—disruption by significant players in the industry like PSVR, Rift, and the Vive.

This trend, with good cause, has been referred to as the ‘financialisation of music’ but that only captures part of what is at play here.
