Digital Entertainment: Who Killed Network Television?

TiVo, IPTV, Slingbox, Sharing Movies and Songs on your iPod and Zune... What's next? A video sharing site purchased for $1.6B?  


This program will provide insight into the changing habits of consumers, the impact of social networking and how new technologies and services will dramatically alter the traditional value chain and content delivery as we know it today. 


Hear about the emerging opportunities and challenges in digital entertainment; from network infrastructure to content creation to delivery to the home and personal devices. What impact will social networks have on consumer viewing habits?  Will the big players (Google, AT&T, Time Warner, Disney, Microsoft) win or will new disruptive technologies render current business models obsolete? What role will user generated content play in the future?


Join the MIT Enterprise Forum in Bellevue on December 13, 2006, for an exploration of the trends, players, regulations, and technologies that are shaping the way consumers watch TV, get movies and create/view digital content. The program will feature a panel of experts exploring these questions and more.
