The world of television is currently coming together in Las Vegas for the National Association of Television Program Executives’ (NATPE) annual conference. Starting today, the conference will explore not only how to build a reality TV blockbuster, but also many topics more relevant to our audience, like monetization of mobile content, online video advertising and the role of Twitter in a newteevee world.
NATPE tickets aren’t exactly cheap; attendees who didn’t pre-register have to pay a whopping $1250 for all three days. However, NATPE has teamed up with Stickam to make the show a little more accessible. The conference is using Stickam’s Payperlive.com to sell live streaming access to all of its sessions. Individual sessions cost $10, and an all-access pass goes for $200. Some of the keynote speakers include Shine Limited CEO and famous daughter Elizabeth Murdoch, House star Hugh Laurie and Vuguru’s Michael Eisner. The complete schedule of the show can be found here.
All the major live streaming platforms have been pushing towards pay-per-view in recent months, with Justin.tv announcing paid streaming last month and Ustream joining the party only a few days ago. Stickam has been offering paid live streams through Payperlive.com for 18 months now, and it recently opened up the offering to its entire user base.
