Learn About TV Everywhere’s Innovations, Challenges and the Tools of the Trade at #smeast

sm-west-arowsTV Everywhere offers the promise of letting customers watch what they want to watch, wherever and—ideally—whenever they want to watch it. In order for TV Everywhere to take hold, MVPDs need to open up, partner, and extend their services to their customers wherever they may be. At the Streaming Media East show, taking place May 21-22 in NYC, we’ve got a session with Comast, Time Warner Cable, Samsung, ESPN and Synacor entitled “Driving TV Everywhere—Innovations, Challenges and the Tools of the Trade“.

Given technical limitations, rights limitations, and sensitivities around brand and user experience, how are MVPDs innovating around this challenge and getting comfortable with sharing their services and customer relationships? Find out what MVPDs and partners are doing to make TV Everywhere a reality, and learn about some of the experiences that are becoming available to end consumers. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Moderator: Mike Green, Senior Director, Strategy & Development, Comcast
  • Eric Hybertson, Director, Rendering Devices, Time Warner Cable
  • Glen Stone, Convergence Strategy and Standards, Samsung Electronics America
  • Damon Phillips, Vice President, WatchESPN & ESPN3
  • Michael Bishara, VP/GM TVE, Synacor
