Podcast—Charter executive calls customer data collection a 'concern'

DENVER—It was just a little more than a month after Charter joined Comcast and Cox in announcing a new consortium to develop and sell addressable advertising. 

Still, at our Pay TV Show in Denver in May, Charter senior VP of video products, Gary Schanman, declared the amount of data being collected on consumers a "concern."

"The amount of data being collected without awareness by consumers is tremendous," he said. "That's something we're proud of defending, and others aren't."

This was just one of a broad range of provocative topics discussed in our morning plenary panel, "The MVPD Roundtable: Innovating in a New Age of Television."
