ScreenHits TV is the central hub of television streaming. A highly sophisticated and selective app that allows consumers to discover a high volume of television content through streaming services all in one place. The app enables great subscription storage, along with selection through features such as the shared carousel. This allows users to recommend high-quality series to family and friends. ScreenHits recently formed a partnership with interactive experience platform Sceenic, which allows viewers to interact via live video while watching TV and films in real time. In this session ScreenHits founder and CEO Rose Adkins Hulse reflects on her experience working to streamline and revolutionise the increasingly fragmented and competitive field of home entertainment.

This talk is part of a series of virtual masterclasses by film and media practitioners, seeking to enable scholars and professionals in the field to share their experience and grow new partnerships. The series forms part of a strand within the newly established Creative Industries Research and Innovation Network (CIRIN) at Oxford Brookes University, which responds to the need for increased attention to the role of the creative industries in social, political and economic terms.

Each instalment of the series will seek to highlight current work undertaken in the field and suggest opportunities for growth and collaboration, while necessarily acknowledging the impact of the COVID-19 crisis from across multiple perspectives within the sector. Special attention will be reserved for the role played by new media platforms of content production, distribution and consumption in the context of a seemingly endless digital expansion, struggling cinema exhibition and shortening theatrical release windows.

The format of the series will allow for dialogue with the attendees, answering questions and networking.
