9:45- 10:30: Panel - The New TV Distributors

With more Internet-delivered video services on offer than ever, and more launching every quarter, the TV and video market is becoming flush with a wide variety of pay TV distributors, ranging from traditional MVPDs, "next-gen" cable operators, to over-the-top "virtual" multichannel video programming distributors (MVPDs) and myriad subscription-based VOD services that are pursuing a fragmenting consumer base with a mix of full-freight and "skinny" service bundles. As consumer habits shift and new forms of competitors emerge, this panel of experts explores how new and existing pay TV distributors are approaching this shifting landscape and debate which models will ultimately win out.
