NEW YORK, April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Louis Hillelson, Group Publisher of
leading television business publications Broadcasting & Cable and Multichannel
News has announced two more additions to the lineup of keynote guests at their
On Demand Summit to be presented on Wednesday, May 8, 2013 in New York City.
The latest additions are Actor-Director-Producer Adrian Grenier of Reckless

Weinstein Company, as well as Comcast Cable's Vice President of Video Services
Maggie McLean Suniewick and Rentrak's Corporate President Cathy Hetzel and the

A popular annual event, the On Demand Summit focuses on the revenue growth
generated on the programming side of the television business. "This Summit
comes at a critical time in the television industry," said Louis Hillelson.
"As technology offers consumers a wider range of viewing options, more content
is available on demand. As a result, the entire business model for programming
distribution, production and sponsorship is in flux. That is why this Summit's
theme is about redefining on demand. The On Demand Summit provides the best
opportunity for the industry to have a dialogue about the direction the
industry is taking for immediate revenue growth."
Each keynote interview will address a different revenue stream. Grenier will
address production; Packer will discuss distribution of video content; Janego
and Quinn will speak about the current state of distributing motion pictures;
Suniewick will address how pay TV is driving more viewership of on demand
content; and Hetzel will present compelling data about audience measurement
and will be joined by Livek who will share some findings of interest to video
providers, programmers and advertisers.
In addition to the five different keynote interview sessions, there will be
six roundtable discussions, each featuring leaders in the industry from
advertising; pay TV and digital broadband distribution; programming and
production; technology suppliers; and marketing.
The On Demand Summit will be presented on Wednesday, May 8, 2013 at Convene, a
business conference center located at 730 Third Avenue, 17^th floor, at East
45^th Street in New York City. Doors open at 8:00 a.m. The Summit program
