MPN to Honor 40 Most Important People in Streaming; Nominations Now Open

Media Play News in the November issue of its monthly magazine will honor the 40 most important people in streaming.

Nomination forms may be accessed here or below.

Honorees will be chosen by a blue-ribbon committee from a field of nominees submitted by readers. The criteria include financial strength, reach, innovation and creativity.

“I anticipate there will be some very obvious names on the list, such as Netflix’s Reed Hastings and Disney+’s Michael Paull, but also quite a few surprises,” said Thomas K. Arnold, publisher of Media Play News. “Over the last three years, since the streaming explosion began, we’ve really seen a focus on the numbers — subscriber counts; churn; how much is being spent on original programming; the proliferating number of streaming services, both SVOD and AVOD/FAST.

“What we haven’t seen much is a detailed look at the people who are driving all of this, beyond the handful of executives who are at the head of the top streaming services.

“With our debut look at the top 40 ‘streamers who matter,’ we want to put faces on the streaming phenomenon and focus on the personalities who are writing this most interesting chapter in the evolution of home entertainment.”

Nominations must be received by Oct. 15. The November issue of Media Play News will be available Nov. 14.
