Introduction
Following the success of “The Future of Cable TV – see programme – ", which was held in Geneva on 25-26 January 2018, the International Telecommunication Union is organized a Workshop on “The Future of TV for the Americas", which took place on 26 November 2018 in Bogotá, Colombia at the kind invitation of the Comisión de Regulación de Comunicaciones of Colombia.

This event, which was jointly organized by the ITU Standardization Sector (ITU-T) and the ITU Development Sector (ITU-D),  focused on the diverse emerging broadband and broadcast technologies, including cable TV, with the aim to assist countries of the Americas region to assess challenges, dynamics and opportunities. The event acted as a platform to share best practices and case studies on related roll-outs as well as provided an opportunity to discuss on the future of TV-related regional and international standardization. Keeping in mind that the future should promote equal opportunities, avoid waste and optimize the use of resources, the event aimed at enhancing the local TV services to their full potential, to enable a future ecosystem which ideally provides advanced services, e.g. virtual and augmented reality, taking advantage of the internet of things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) as well as integrated 5G networks. Finally this event aimed to support a future where the fast flow of information is provided at affordable costs in order to ensure to everyone accessibility and a more inclusive life.
