TVOT CONNECT is a new, weekly, online, TV-industry membership community from ITVT/TVOT and nScreenMedia that aims to encourage conversation, debate, networking and collaboration across all sectors of the advanced-TV space. The membership fee is $40 per month; however, the initial sessions are being offered to ITVT and nScreenMedia readers free of charge (visit our membership page here).

TVOT CONNECT sessions take place on Thursdays at 2:00PM Eastern/11:00AM Pacific using Zoom. Members first have an opportunity to briefly introduce themselves, their current work and their areas of expertise; this is followed by an interview with one or more prominent industry leaders, featuring audience Q&A; finally, members are able to access discussion rooms where they can share their thoughts on the day’s interview and network with their peers.
In addition, one session per month features the presentation of new, original research by Colin Dixon, Founder and Chief Analyst of nScreenMedia.
