Attendees at the INTX 2015 convention in Chicago next week will receive a bonus: a free paperback copy of a new history of the cable-TV industry, written by Cable Center CEO Larry Satkowiak (pictured). The book also will be given to attendees of the Cable TV Pioneers dinner Monday night in Chicago.
The Cable Industry: A Short History Through Three Generations, underwritten by Carlsen Resources Inc., fills a need often expressed to the Cable Center for a concise history of the business, the center said in a release. In the three generations that frame the book, cable television grew from community antennas retransmitting broadcast stations into a telecommunications power and the nation's leading provider of high-speed Internet service in addition to telephone and hundreds of channels of linear and on-demand television.
INTX 2015: The Internet & Television Expo is taking place at McCormick Place West in Chicago, May 5-7. Multichannel News will be publishing a show daily at the convention, and hosting a breakfast session Wednesday around the topic of multicultural TV.
