TV Moves Online: Market Slices, Video Vices and Connected Devices

Led by Colin Dixon, Senior Partner Advisory, of The Diffusion Group

The connected world is beginning to exert its irresistible pull on the television industry. From broadcasters to operators, device manufacturers to infrastructure vendors, every company is scrambling to understand how to adapt to the new world order. Some are hanging tough, retrenching behind the tried and tested business models. Others are shunning the old ways and going native with over-the-top services and solutions. Still others are trying to walk that fine line between traditional models and Internet innovations.

At the center of it all sits the consumer, whose love affair with connected devices is fueling the migration of TV online. The demand for video on every device with a screen and a connection to the Internet is upending the traditional entertainment experience. Behaviors established over the last 80 years could be swept away in a decade or less.

This half-day workshop will help you makes sense of all these changes. We will start with an in-depth look at the newest Nordic OTT Pay video service: Netflix. We will look at this OTT VOD business, its prospects in the Scandinavian market and how subscribers to the service are feeling after price increases and content changes have shaken up the experience in the US. Then we will look at how operators and broadcasters are responding to the Netflix challenge. WE’ll look at why HBO launched in Scandinavia and at how this might leverage US properties such as HBO Go. We’ll also look at how TV-Everywhere deployments are helping avoid the specter of cord-cutting.

Understanding the environment at the television set is critical to any successful video service. We will focus particularly on smart TVs and Internet STBs and understand how other devices like game consoles and blu-ray players will compete. Mobile video consumption is also becoming a critical part of the TV experience. This workshop will help you understand the transformational impacts of the iPad as well as how smartphones are entering the mix.

Finally, we will look at the new environment for television. To do this we will examine the impact of apps and the cloud on Internet video and see how these two essential elements come together to create entirely new TV experiences.

With great change, comes great opportunity. TDG’s TV Moves Online Workshop will help you understand the changes and shine a light on some of these once-in-a-century opportunities.
