The Future of Television


How soon can I stop paying for TV, and what services should I be subscribing to in the future? This talk will address these questions, as well as discussing the future of TV, given the recent changes in consumer demand, programmer distribution, cable offerings and the introduction of new smart devices. This will include an overview of TV economics, comparing them to more recent trends to understand how the industry may evolve. We'll also take a look at other disrupted media sectors to understand how consumer preferences and content creation costs could affect how the TV landscape evolves.
