What’s the next big thing in online video? Are consumers ready to cut the cord? How will the growing proliferation of tablet and other mobile device influence video distribution? These are just some of the topics we will be discussing at NewTeeVee Live 2010, which will be held November 10 at the Mission Bay Conference Center in San Francisco.
Now in its fourth year, NewTeeVee Live is the premiere event covering the paradigm shift in video creation and distribution, from traditional TV and film formats to a growing number of online and mobile outlets. Past speakers have included Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, Hulu CEO Jason Kilar, former CBS Interactive President Quincy Smith, YouTube co-founder Steve Chen and Felicia Day, creator of The Guild. This year we have another great lineup, with representatives from Adobe, Vevo, Google TV, Samsung and Fox Broadcasting, among others.

Topics of interest covered at NewTeeVee Live 2010 include:
- Cutting the cord – With the rise of ubiquitous broadband and the availability of popular shows through online portals, cable “unsubscribers” are the new trend.
- Touch TV – What impact will the iPad and similar devices have on viewing habits? Will new devices and audiences herald a new wave of content formats and innovation?
- Google TV – Can Google succeed where Microsoft and others have failed? Will Google’s strengths in search and its YouTube service allow it to create a killer product proposition?
- Multiplatform Storytelling – People are now watching shows on their TVs, netbooks, laptops, set-top boxes and tablets. How is this endpoint proliferation transforming both mainstream television and web-only content?
