The Next Great Industry to Be Disrupted by The Internet - Televison

A session at Digital Shoreditch Festival 2012

Thursday 31st May, 2012

4:40pm to 4:50pm (GMT)

A Headline I have been waiting for: "Future TV Disruption - Forbes says it's Worth Half a Trillion Dollars For Internet Companies". The intersection (media convergence) of TV, Gaming, Social, and the Web is the space that I work and love to revel in. And am happy to share my thoughts. From Apple TV to Zeebox - Connected TV to Social TV - there's massive changes on the horizon. How can tech startups participate in the some 200 billion pounds in global TV ad spend that coming up for grabs?

Questions answered :
What is the next big thing? How will TV and the Internet intersect? What's Connected or Smart TV? What's Social TV? What's Multiplatform Engagement? What's Transmedia? What are TV Apps?
