At the dawn of a new year, the media and technology sectors are poised to continue a period of profound transformation and innovation. These intersecting industries can be a confusing world to navigate, which is why Variety Intelligence Platform’s “2023 Outlook” special report attempts to distill everything going on through the lens of the competitions between various leading companies across a wide range of content categories.  

Our “2023 Outlook” digs deep into the battle for consumers’ attention across streaming, digital, TV, video games, hardware and film. VIP+ analyzed the current standing of the brands vying for market dominance in a heavily consolidated world in which a handful of conglomerates are also heavily concentrated.
