Quote "“Television is not a device anymore,” Mary-José Monpetit, lecturer and pioneering work on social, wireless and multi-screen television at the MIT Media Lab, said. “It’s content.”

“If we talk about using the content to create a community then we are using television content to create a community.”

Ms. Monpetit noted that there is a disconnect in the experience viewers have on a television and the experience they have online. While there is a connection forming between television watching and the online world there is still no way of making it a seamless experience.

So instead of creating a traditional interactive television experience, one of her students at MIT created an app to track Super PACs during the last US Presidential election.

It's all about contents, but in my opinion television set is one of the screens available for contents.

Gary, in your opinion Mary-José Monpetit refers to tv set or television (contents for television)? because tv set in my idea is one of the available screens. In a transmedial point of view tv screen content tells the leading part of the story but even in this case is just a screen.
