Connected TV Summit | Altim Media

Just a note to say that Altim Media will be attending the Connected TV Summit (http://connectedtvsummit.com/) on Wednesday (2nd May) and Thursday (3rd May) this week, and are looking forward to hearing the learned thoughts of the presenters and meeting with as many of the attendees as we can. Of particular interest will be the Connected TV Awards, not least of which because we have been part of the judging panel (http://www.v-net.tv/connected-tv-summit-awards/).

TV Now is the latest Internet-based DVR service to find courtroom trouble

Consumers around the world want a hassle-free way to record free, over-the-air television and play it back on any Internet-connected device. But every time a company creates such a service, it gets sued by copyright holders. Last year we reported on ivi, an American firm that argued that it qualified for a compulsory licensing regime designed for cable companies. The courts didn’t buy it. Another American company, Aereo, is still fighting in court about whether its “tiny antennas” service is legal.
