At Turner, we are focused on the charge given to us by our CEO John Martin to reimagine TV in a way that maps to the ever-changing and evolving media industry landscape. John recently told ReCode’s Peter Kafka: “We’re reinventing our company from the inside out.” He explained that there is an evolution taking place at Turner that will play out over time, with technology leading the way. This isn’t just a theory. To better demonstrate what is happening, we’ve created the “Reimagine TV” series for the blog, where we will highlight our journey via interviews, videos or announcements.
Our first episode is with CEO and Founder of You.i TV, Jason Flick. We’ve been talking a lot about our partnership and investment in You.i TV and how they are helping us standardize our approach to elegant applications building to deliver unique customer experiences. With the recent launch of our first direct to consumer application FilmStruck, we thought this would be a perfect time to hear from Jason and what this partnership and effort looks like from his perspective.
