The Future of Video Policy and Business Models

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.

“The Future of Video Policy and Business Models” will be held Friday, January 24, 2014 from 9:00am to 11:00am at the National Press Club, located at 529 14th St. NW, 13th Floor, in Washington, DC. A continental breakfast will be served. Questions should be directed to Ashley Benjamin at [email protected]. Members of the press should contact Amy Smorodin at [email protected].
