Five reasons why I love connected TV | Digital Television Futures | Scoop.it

I’m a digital guy at heart and perhaps that’s why I can’t wait for the connected TV to really shift the consumer and media landscape. Of course I also love how connected TV is going to shake up the traditional TV world with some digital savviness. I won’t be the only one singing connected TV’s praises – advertisers are going to love it for five big reasons.

BBC pushes red button on Virgin

The BBC says it is “reinventing” red button interaction to bring together television, radio and online media. The integration launches on the Virgin Media TiVo service, available in 1.2 million homes in the United Kingdom. The new connected red button features will roll out to other internet connected television platforms over the coming months. While the design is a great improvement, favouring a commercial platform and failing to support from the outset the new YouView joint venture in which it is a partner suggests that the BBC strategy is far from connected.

Telcos and "OTT players" - why "them & us" attitudes need to change | Digital Television Futures | Scoop.it

Over the last four years, the largest cliché in the telecoms industry has become the divisive, false and unhelpful battle lines drawn between “telcos” (traditional telecom operators) and so-called "over-the top" (OTT) Internet firms. Epitomised by companies such as Google, Microsoft/Skype and Facebook, Internet-based application and service companies have been cast as the upstart invaders, creating financial and network-congestion havoc over “our pipes.”
