CES Gets Taste of Sports


Sports Video Group will hold its first annual “CES Sports TV Summit” at the 2006 International Consumer Electronics Show.

The Consumer Electronics Association and Sports Video Group will release the findings of their survey of sports fans that gauges their interest in HDTV and how it changes their sports-viewing habits.

And CSTV CEO and cofounder Brian Bedol and ESPN vice president of strategic business planning and development Bryan Burns will discuss how sports-content distributors can better meet the demands of today's fans.
