Frequency founder and CEO, Blair Harrison, said, “as more viewers get their TV over-the-top, the key to giving them a great content experience is to offer them more choice. Studio was built to connect video creators with distributors as frictionlessly as possible. The rapid growth of free ad-supported TV services (FASTs) is fueled by new channels finding new audiences. Studio is at the center of this. Empowering the next generation of broadcasters.”
