"The Virtual MSO" at The TV of Tomorrow Show 2014

[itvt] is pleased to present a video recording of the TVOT 2014 session, "The Virtual MSO." The session was described in the show brochure as follows:

"For years the MSO's wouldn't play in each others' sandboxes. It was just too expensive to build a second physical plant, and the big guys didn't want to be limited to anything less than 100% market share. Then a few smaller guys (like Wide Open West and Knology) started overbuilding, along with DIRECTV and DISH, then Verizon and AT&T. The 100% market share in a local market was a historical artifact.

"TV Everywhere: Ready to Break Out?" at The TV of Tomorrow Show 2014

[itvt] is pleased to present a video recording of the TVOT 2014 session, "TV Everywhere: Ready to Break Out?" The session was described in the show brochure as follows:

"According to a new research report from NPD Group, around 21% of pay-TV customers are now using TV Everywhere services at least once a month--a figure which, while somewhat encouraging when compared to statistics from just last year, shows that TVE still has a long way to go before it can be considered a truly popular medium and its roll-out judged an unqualified success.
