Not too long ago, the fight for control was all about the living room and it was between cable, satellite and telcos with a tech effort here and there. Now that broadband has gone mainstream we’re talking internet TVs, gaming consoles, indie set-tops, over-the-top and home-wide networks. Connected devices—cellphones, smartphones, tablets—and cross-platform content services, portals and apps raise the stakes from the home to anywhere the people who live there happen to be. Comcast is looking to Xfinity and beyond, Apple wants another try—and this fall Google TV enters the fray. We’ll look at today’s reality, what 2011 has in store and what has the best shot at winning it all.

Some of the questions we’ll be exploring: Are we at the beginning of a broadband multichannel world or an a la carte one where the consumer is the programmer? Can incumbents innovate pricing and products fast enough to stay dominant?  Can the newcomers make real money? When does being a control freak make good business sense—- and at what point does it lead to consumer apathy and damage the brand? Can you experiment too much? Please join us for what promises to be a robust conversation with key industry execs, innovators and investors about The Battle for the Digital Home.
