Traditional pay TV is beginning to lose subscribers. Wall Street analyst Craig Moffett called this past year pay TV's "worst 12 month stretch ever." At the same time, over-the-top providers, primarily Netflix, are growing quickly. Yet, not all analysts believe Netflix has the winning business model. New business models and threats to old business models dovetail with various efforts at policy reform in Washington, including debates over usage-based billing, Internet "signal importation," and a la carte choices rather than bundles of channels. This conference will discuss these and other issues facing the video market.
Confirmed panelists for the event are:
- Paul Gallant, Managing Director and Telecom Policy Analyst, Guggenheim Partners
- Howard Homonoff,Principal and Managing Director, Homonoff Media Group
- Jeffrey Prince, Associate professor and the Cathie and Jerry Anderson Faculty Fellow, Kelley School of Business, Indiana University
- Scott Wallsten (moderator),Vice President for Research and Senior Fellow, Technology Policy Institute
