HBO, Sky, Fox & Others To Discuss Parity Between Online Video and Broadcast Television

We are starting to see momentum gather for online video: cable subscribers are declining and online video consumption is increasing. But the two experiences, watching TV and watching online video, aren’t the same yet. At the Streaming Media East show in NYC, taking place May 16-17, we have a panel that will talk about what it might take to get parity between the traditional television experience and streaming video. Broadcast television generally has better quality, more consistent delivery, and improved customer service. Yet the allure of anytime, anywhere access from any device is driving consumer behavior towards OTT services like Netflix, Hulu, HBO, and more. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Moderator: Jason Thibeault, Executive Director, Streaming Video Alliance
  • Clark Pierce, SVP, TV Everywhere, FOX Sports Go
  • Andreas Engde, Project Manager, Viaplay
  • John Narus, Director, Digital Products, HBO Latin America
  • Mourad Kioumgi, Solutions Architect, Sky
