Normally we reserve our blog space to tell you about the latest PlayOn and PlayLater updates, our favorite online plugins and channels and new tips and tricks that make it easier to cut the cable cord. Today, we’re turning the tables and asking an unusual request from you, our readers and brand advocates.
We love TV streaming and one of our key goals here at PlayOn is to improve online streaming, make it easier for TV and movie lovers to access all the great content that is available online on their TV, phones and tablets, whenever and wherever. We’ve worked hard to develop PlayOn, PlayLater and MyMedia to help accomplish this and continue to evolve our products to meet your needs.
We also work hard to spread this message among influencers and TV streaming enthusiasts that can help us change the way we think about TV, how we pay for it and how we watch it. This is where you come in.
We have submitted two panels to the 2015 SXSW Interactive conference, a huge show that takes place in Austin Texas that focuses on talks and presentations around emerging technology. Both of our panels will address issues around cutting the cord and online streaming and how we can solve them. Rather than having a panel of SXSW judges decide who is most qualified to be on the panel agenda, they turn it over to their audience to make the decision and cast their vote. Whether you’re attending or not, the public gets to vote on the speakers and topics they would most like to see represented at SXSW, and we would love for you all to vote for our panels.
Creating an account to vote is easy: head on over to SXSW Panel Picker, fill in some basic info and you’re free to cast your vote. (See our panel voting links below). Voting will go through September 5th. If you have a question for any of our panelists or would like to hear more about a certain topic, please leave us a comment. Even if you don’t plan on attending SXSW Interactive, we will share our thoughts on each of the panels here on the blog so you can join in the conversation.
Thanks for your help with this! We’ll keep you updated on the selection process and will let you know if you can find us at SXSW 2015!
