    Televisionation Friday Fireside: Jamie Parker, Chief Product Officer at Gamestar+

    December 9, 2022

    Televisionation: Friday Fireside, the #1 television industry Webcast, features Rick Howe, The iTV Doctor, in conversation with prominent figures from the advanced-TV/video industry.

    Like many of you, I have an old WebTV box somewhere in the attic. 25 years ago, it felt like the concept of playing hit games shows like “Jeopardy” and “Wheel of Fortune” on TV would usher in the Era of Interactive Television. And for the most part, we’re all still waiting for the ushers to find our seats. But this week’s Friday Fireside guest Jamie Parker, Chief Product Officer at Gamestar+, might finally have cracked the code. It’s not about the device or the platform: It’s about THE GAME! Watch, and learn.
