How to Access TV2025 Sessions

To attend these sessions you must have the Zoom application downloaded on your computer. We encourage starting this process well in advance of any sessions you wish to view.

  1. Make sure you’ve registered for the TV2025 Pass prior to the start of the event.
  2. If you’ve not already done so, log in via the link in the upper right corner of the page (NOTE: when logged in, you should see your name in the upper right corner instead of “Log in”)
  3. If you’ve not already done so, be sure to download Zoom prior to the start of the event. If you don’t yet have a zoom account, you’ll need to create one to join the session.
  4. Click the session link above then click the “Join Meeting” button beginning 15 minutes prior to the session start time. DO NOT share your Zoom link; it is unique to you. You will no longer be able to access the content if anyone you shared it with logs in before you do. One link is good for one participant.
  5. If the expected time has passed and you don’t see a button on the session page, hit the refresh button on your screen. Be sure you’re registered for the right program and are logged in.

NAB will be endeavoring to get all Zoom content posted for on-demand viewing within 48 hours after the session completes and content will be available for viewing on the site for at least 30 days following the event’s end. Your pass will continue to grant you access to this content post-event.
