The Future of Television

The Future of Television is Now. Are You Ready? (September 21, 2016. 10AM PST.)

How people watch television is changing. No longer are they tied to their couches or an arbitrary programming guide. They are watching video from wherever they want, whenever they want, and from whatever device they want to use as more and more content is being delivered over the Internet. In this session, we’ll explore the generational shift between traditional broadcast and streaming video, predict what television might be like in five years, and address what companies like yours need to do today in order to take advantage of the transformation that is happening.

This topic is presented by Jason Thibeault, the Executive Director of the Streaming Video Alliance. You can follow Jason on Twitter at @_jasonthibeault.
