Anthony Rose, Co-Founder and CTO at zeebox, the second screen app provider whose app is now available for the Apple iPad, believes companion screen viewing is the most exciting development in television since VOD. He is using the term ‘augmentainment’ to describe the way tablet or smartphone apps can provide rich information about programming or support social interaction. He is predicting that second screen apps will change the TV industry faster than most people think and that the growing influence of social TV, including chat and content recommendation, will change the way we discover content and also change the rules about who owns the consumer.
