[itvt] is pleased to present an audio recording of the TVOT NYC 2014 session, "The Refashioning of Pay-TV's Technology and Content Infrastructure." The session was described in the show brochure as follows:
"By most accounts, the past few months have been a rocky time for pay-TV: according to a recent report from Leichtman Research Group, for example, the 13 largest operators in the US (representing 95% of the market) lost 150,000 video subscribers in the third quarter, compared to 25,000 in the same period last year; and nary a day goes by without a story appearing in the business press about the 'decline' or even the 'demise' of pay-TV.
[itvt] is pleased to present an audio recording of the TVOT NYC 2014 session, "Content over Distribution: Fluid Audiences and How to Reach Them" The session was described in the show brochure as follows:
"TV today is just video, and audiences don't care about the first screen or the second screen; they care about the Best Screen Available (BSA). What does this mean for broadcasters and how they package and value their products to serve brands? And how do brands retool their advertising roster and business to ensure that they are continually chasing maximum reach and ROI on their spend?

As most of you are probably aware, [itvt]'s daily news reporting was on hiatus for several weeks, because our editorial team was working on TVOT NYC 2014 and then taking a post-event break. In order to catch up with the news we missed during that period, we are covering stories in headlines/round-up format (note: we have marked older stories with the date they originally broke). We expect it will take us a few weeks to catch up with all recent developments, so if you have sent us a press release or briefed us about a piece of news, and don't yet see it covered here, please bear with us.
As some of you know, the good doctor sometimes puts on the red velvet suit for local community groups. Done it for years. And just for grins, I thought I share a few observations from behind the beard.
In our family we have ongoing debates on the commercialization of Christmas. My wife takes the position that all the good that is done at Christmas--donations, food drives, helping those in need--should be done all year long. And she's right (as usual). But my position is that if we didn't do good at Christmas, we might not do it at all.
Based on the votes we’ve received, here are the finalists in alphabetical order:
We've been talking about OTT and The Virtual MSO for months now. I've published a few columns on the subject, and moderated three panels in New York.
