Learn About Virtual Coffee Tables and TV App Graveyards At #smwest

In the past year, we’ve cluttered iPads and Smartphones with dozens of TV related apps. Some are still kicking, some barely have a pulse, and some are the former “hot new things” gone cold and dead. What is there to learn from this all? Is there a one-size-fits all answer or approach to TV apps?

At the Streaming Media West show next week, (#smwest) speakers will discuss if there an uber-TV app coming, or are we destined to have a dedicated app for each TV show we like, each network we watch, each movie we see, etc. Lead by smart TV guru Jeremy Toeman, confirmed speakers include:

  • Moderator: Jeremy Toeman, CEO, Dijit
  • Ole Lutjens, Founding Partner, MX
  • Geoff Katz, VP, Business Development, WatchWith
  • Colin Decker, VP, Audience Development, Revision3
