Industry leaders will be answering cable's toughest questions Oct 1 in NYC.

Our main goal is to tear down the artificial walls that no longer divide traditional media players from disrupters challenging the existing TV ecosystem

The October 1 TV Innovation Summit is a unique, insight-packed summit that will examine how rapid changes in the TV ecosystem are dramatically shifting the landscape. The summit brings together thought leaders and experts across the content industry to share ideas, tactics, and answers to the toughest questions facing the multiscreen universe.

“Our main goal is to tear down the artificial walls that no longer divide traditional media players from disrupters challenging the existing TV ecosystem,” said Cablefax Associate Publisher Michael Grebb. “Whether it’s OTT content, skinny bundles, virtual MVPDs or exciting new monetization strategies that cross all platforms, this conference will shine a light on the most important questions facing TV executives today—including how they might better serve increasingly fickle content consumers while driving revenue to the bottom line.”

The TV Innovation Summit will begin with a keynote address from Marci Ryvicker, Managing Director, Equity Research Media Analyst at Wells Fargo Securities, that will address challenges faced by traditional content providers, including the shift to OTT and disruptive live streaming.
