SAN FRANCISCO -- Watchwith®, the leader in related content syndication, today announced its partnership with Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX) to power a new, first-of-its-kind syndication network that will distribute FOX’s custom sync-to-broadcast experiences – currently available exclusively on its FOX NOW app -- to other second-screen TV app providers. The new service allows FOX partners to take advantage of FOX’s high-quality companion content and ensures that fans can enjoy a premium, cohesive FOX digital content and advertising experience across multiple TV apps and platforms. Earlier today FOX announced their new digital content syndication network launch partners, Shazam®, Viggle℠, ConnecTV and NextGuide, will feature FOX NOW sync-to-broadcast content within their multi-platform environments. This partnership heralds the beginning of the next generation of second-screen TV business and signifies FOX’s industry-leading recognition of the need for content owners to create, syndicate, and monetize value added sync-to-broadcast programming for the second-screen and beyond. FOX’s sync-to-broadcast initiative takes the second-screen experience beyond social TV, and digital content syndication via Watchwith provides a clear path to scale on the second-screen for FOX and their partners. “FOX is opening up new beachfront property on the second-screen for their most popular shows,” said Zane Vella, Watchwith CEO. “This groundbreaking FOX agreement, in addition to our long term platform-as-a-service agreements with NBC, USA Network, Bravo, and Syfy, signals an important step toward an industry standard solution for both programmers and advertisers.” Fox Broadcasting Co.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
