TV’s Are the New Storefront Window

Studies revealed 86 percent of people tune into their favorite shows with a “second screen,” browsing content on their smartphones/tablets while watching TV. In addition, the majority are browsing content on their tablets directly related to what they are watching (Razorfish and Yahoo! Mobile). There’s a prime opportunity for retailers and advertisers to connect with consumers on their TVs and mobile devices like never before. But what’s the best way to do it?

Executives from eBay and PayPal will join network partners like Comcast and Tivo to discuss this new commerce revolution. We will share how TVs are the new storefront windows – able to offer tailor-made shopping experiences for consumers right from the comfort of their own couches, and right on the screens they know and love.
