Morning Workshop: Using ACR Data To Better Monetize OTT: Separating Truth From Fiction
This fun interactive session will provide an overview of what ACR data from smart TVs is, how it’s collected, why it’s suddenly such a hot commodity and how TV content owners are using it to make money. We’ll talk about some of the myths and misunderstandings around ACR data, who is using it and how, and what the future looks like.

Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the benefits of ACR data, of what the measurement landscape looks like in general, and how they can use ACR and techniques like multitouch attribution to grow their ad business.

Plenary Panel: Integrating Streaming into the Pay TV Service

Now that MVPDs have grown accustomed to incorporating Netflix and other leading SVOD services into their UIs the next logical step is to exploit the appeal of other digital content outlets offering original programming with appeal to niche audiences, often numbering in the millions of users. How far should MVPDs go in the direction of making third-party OTT content part of their user experience, and how can they make it easier to accommodate such integrations? This discussion will address both questions.

Track 1: Future Proofing Sports Content
Until recently, live sports content was believed to be one of the few programming assets immune to over-the-top disruption. However, with major sports entities like the NFL negotiating key distribution deals with platforms like Amazon as linear viewership shows marked declines, it’s clear that even the most vaunted national pastimes are being subjected to digital change. How can MVPDs, programmers and the leagues themselves develop their digital distribution businesses and simultaneously maintain or even grow the linear piece? Can sports continue to hold the multichannel bundle together? Can league licensing costs continue to rise forever? Are leagues like the NFL reaching saturation? Will we see transactional models, such as pay-per-view, assume a larger role in distribution? This panel will holistically examine the future business models of sports on TV.

Keynote: How to Gracefully Migrate to IP Distribution While Keeping Your CFO Happy

As consumers increasingly find new ways to view television content, cable and telecommunications operators are faced with the challenge of transitioning legacy video delivery networks to IP distribution systems capable of serving video to multiple devices inside and outside of the home. In this keynote, Brent Smith, president and chief technology officer at Evolution Digital, delves into the challenges facing cable operators with legacy video delivery systems and outlines a strategy for the graceful migration to IP distribution that would make any chief financial officer happy. Issues Smith will cover include why it is imperative for operators to migrate to IP video distribution, as well as how providers can launch a phased approach and minimize CAPEX investments by deploying IP hybrid set-top boxes, converting Pay-Per-View and Video on Demand services to IP distribution. Smith will emphasize the financial benefits of working with a managed service provider. Smith will also describe the importance and challenges of streaming IP content to multi-screen connected devices and launching other app-based software solutions to reach the on-the-go and non-traditional viewing households.

Track 1: Combatting Churn: Bundling, Pricing, and Promo Strategies That Work

With no contracts to sign, or equipment to lease, or installation visits to manage, relationships between program distributors and customers come easy in the over-the-top world. Maybe too easy. How do suppliers handle a newly liberated consumer who, in many cases, quits services almost as quickly as they sign up for them, often cherry-picking them to view specific programming? How can services best manage program assets, both to keep subscribers engaged, and to even recommend new personalized offerings? What are the service bundling, pricing and promotional strategies that not only bring customers in, but keep them in?
