About
FFWD
Getting you up to speed with the world of online video
Note from the editor

Big things are happening in the world of online video, and massive changes are afoot. We see platforms like YouTube, Twitch and TikTok in the headlines on a near-weekly basis, but dig beyond the headlines of most coverage and… well, you won’t find much. FFWD is the home for the smartest takes on the things that will matter in the near future in online video, by the journalists who are embedded in that space and know it best. It’ll look at the bigger trends and put them into all-important context, explaining to you what their wider impact is for society and how this shifts the way we work, earn money, and spend our time. It’ll lead the conversation on things that are going to become big, while also acknowledging that perhaps trying to see outside of the online video bubble can be hard.
