Parks Associates Research Director to present "Who is Watching TV Everywhere" at The Cable Show

115 Million U.S. and Canadian pay-TV subscribers will have access to multiscreen services from pay-TV provider by 2016---


Brett Sappington, Director, Research, Parks Associates, will present consumer research on multiscreen services during the session "Who is Watching TV Everywhere" at The Cable Show's Imagine Park on June 11 at 12:45 P.M.

Parks Associates estimates nearly 115 million U.S. and Canadian pay-TV subscribers will be able to receive multiscreen services from their existing pay-TV provider by 2016. That same year, 90 million subscribers in Western Europe will be able to receive these services, and over 50 million subscribers each in Eastern Europe and Asia-Pacific will have access to TV Everywhere multiscreen services.

"TV Everywhere has quickly become a standard offering for pay-TV providers, and now the key challenge facing them is how to monetize these services," Sappington said. "At The Cable Show, we will explore which pay-TV subscribers use TV Everywhere services with an in-depth analysis of Parks Associates' consumer research."

The Cable Show 2013 is NCTA's 62nd annual convention and international exposition and the cable industry's premier U.S. event. The event, June 10-12 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, combines entertainment, information, and communications in addressing the infrastructure, services, and strategies coming together to create powerful new capabilities.
