In this newly created post, he will be based in Los Angeles and report to Aaron Sloman, the company’s CTO.
Nelson will oversee the innovation of Ownzones’ suite of products and services and help develop novel concepts. He will also help evolve the consumer facing discover experience, A/B testing framework and product data intelligence.
Nelson was head of product creative at Netflix from 2012 to 2016, prior to which he also held key positions at other leading digital rights management organisations including Cognizant Technology, Deluxe Entertainment Services and Ascent Media.

Commenting on the appointment, Sloman said: “We are thrilled that Nick has joined us to further develop and refine our consumer OTT interface and user experience. He’s highly regarded in the industry for his knowledge to build and rollout brilliant OTT and streaming offerings, most notably in the early days of Netflix and recently with Seeso. I look forward to working closely with him on the innovation and strategy around our company’s products.”
