"The Changing TV Landscape"
Jim Funk, VP, Business Development, Roku
People hear OTT (Over the Top) and they tend to think “Cord Cutting.” For us at Roku, OTT is a way of expanding television in the home whether we are bringing new content providers to the TV screen or delivering the offerings of existing platforms like that of HBO Go.

9:45am – 10:15am
"TV Everywhere: When TV Takes to the Cloud"
Fireside Chat
with Ian Blaine, CEO, thePlatform
Interviewed by: Todd Spangler, Technology Editor, Multichannel News
Media companies and TV operators recognize that consumers want access to their video wherever they go. As such, many are leveraging the cloud and IP-delivery to create new experiences across PCs, mobile phones, tablets, and the TV screen itself. TV Everywhere initiatives continue to progress here in the US and abroad, but it’s still in initial phases of deployments. Overall, consumers are gaining more diverse and engaging ways to enjoy their favorite shows. At the same time, issues such as rights and business policies, lack of standardization, and improving the consumer user experience remain. As the industry addresses these issues for connected-devices, it opens new opportunities to re-evaluate and enhance the TV experience itself in the home. The TV services of tomorrow will be more personalized, more social, and deliver more web-like experiences.

“Hot issue” talking points:
Cloud-based TV technology
- Authentication strategies that enable consumers to watch TV programming and other previously unavailable shows on connected TVs and devices
- Navigating technological and business agreement complexities to publish video across a myriad of destinations and devices
- Syndication and content discovery strategies across the Web, TV, connected devices
- The role of ‘metadata’ for improving the consumer experience
- Other contemporary topics about the key players and initiatives taking place across the industry
