Highlights from Day 1 of BroadbandTVcon

broadbandtvcon-83The 5th annual BroadbandTVcon is taking place right now in Santa Clara, CA, and boasts an impressive roster of social TV companies and speakers there to talk about the future of second screen, augmented TV, and TV Everywhere. Piksel and Brightcove are Gold Sponsors and Eric Berger, Sony Pictures Television’s Executive Vice President of Digital Networks, and Roy Sekoff, President and Co-Creator of HuffPost Live, are the keynote speakers.

While Lost Remote could not be in attendance, we have been following the conversation closely on Twitter. You can follow along via the #bbtvcon hashtag, and here’s what some of the attendees are talking about on Day 1:

TV Everywhere is Making Authenticated Content Easier to Access

TV EverywhereTV Everywhere is the technological ability to watch whatever you want, whenever, however you want it (from your phone, tablet, laptop, etc.). It’s included as part of your cable subscription service, so it comes at no extra charge to you. The best part is that it is easy. The TV Everywhere site (http://www.youcouldbewatching.tv/) by CTAM (Cable and Telecommunications Association for Marketing) will guide you through the log-in and authentication process online and direct you to the individual cable and networks apps so that you can start watching TV everywhere.
