Over 40 percent of U.S. broadband households are very positive on TV Everywhere services — offerings that let cable customers view TV programs online as part of their subscription — but only 16 percent are willing to pay an additional $5 per month for this service. These consumer realities create business challenges for companies in the digital living space, even as new technologies open more opportunities in value-added services and connected CE.

CONNECTIONS™: The Digital Living Conference and Showcase, hosted by international research firm Parks Associates on June 8-10, 2010, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, tackles these and other issues in the markets for connected home technologies and digital living solutions. The conference agenda focuses on key topic areas:

  • Entertainment Platforms & Value-Added Services
  • Consumer Electronics
  • New Media and Digital Content
  • Home Systems & Controls

Sessions feature analysis from industry executives and leading consumer research from Parks Associates on the best business and product strategies to succeed in the connected home industries:
