Putting the ‘smart’ into Smart TV | Videonet | SocialTVNews | Scoop.it

It is pretty clear where the major Connected TV vendors are heading this year, adding value to their platforms by integrating companion screen experiences (initially focused on tablet/phone remote control and programme guides) and by making multimedia content sharing around the home easier. Both of these will provide a value-add for consumers beyond the provision of on-demand or even increasing volumes of live TV through the apps. The expansion of tablet ranges means there will be more focus on multi-screen delivery of video content as well, with Sony likely to lead the way there thanks to its Video Unlimited content offer.
