The Story Behind the Numbers

Whether it’s looking at ARPU, RGUs, EBITDA or the role of OTTs in relation to the international community of DOCSIS ready ISPs, Cable Congress delegates will be sure not to miss a must-see presentation laying out fresh pan-European numbers for the cable business.
Another Golden Age of TV
In a world where the length of the sound byte seems to be shrinking every year, why are cable customers tuning in more than ever for long-arc, slow burning TV? It’s no wonder that the magic that is grabbing and expanding viewers’ attention is something attractive not just to cable customers but also its competitors. Moving into a world where TV is shorthand for TV everywhere with the consumer calling the shots, the partnership between content providers and the cable industry has never been more vital – or fruitful. We will look at the unseen role of technology and what it enables cable customers today and how cable wants to enable viewers in the future.
