The Future of TV is Now: Time To Deliver on the Promise

At the Streaming Media East show in NYC, taking place May 16-17, we have a panel with Plex, NBC Universal, Roku, Vimeo and Vice that will discuss the future of TV. As 2017 continues to see big disruption in the TV space, the problem that exists with Internet TV and OTT is that the “consumer experience is terrible.” Many believe that hardware platforms and content providers must come together to address the problem of “how do I easily find what I’m looking for?” While some device manufacturers are developing better universal search, there are still huge unresolved problems for viewers, including inconsistent access to content across platforms, a wide variety of user experiences, and getting unbiased recommendations. This panel of hardware companies, software companies, and publishers will talk about how consumers want to watch video and what the future of TV will look like. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Moderator: Keith Valory, CEO, Plex
  • Moritz Gimbel, VP, Product, NBC Universal
  • Bernarda Duarte, Director, Content Acquisition, Roku
  • Will True, Senior Product Manager, TV Apps, Vimeo
  • Drake Martinet, VP, Product, Vice
