Is bigger always better? Evolving TV and video-consumption habits

The way we watch TV is evolving continuously. About 10 years ago, it was all about the size of your TV screen at home. While the bigger the better still applies in the living room, in the past two or three years, mobile broadband  and the cloud have enabled TV content to be viewed on smaller devices such as the smartphone or tablet.

The question is, can you really enjoy the content in the same way on such a tiny screen? Apparently. The latest TV and video ConsumerLab report found that mobile devices are an important part of the TV experience, with 67 percent using tablets, smartphones or laptops for their everyday TV viewing.

For me, however, I think it depends on what you watch. If you’re watching a news snippet or reacting to TV on social-media sites, it’s great.  If your commute allows you to get a whole episode of your favorite show in, I think it’s OK too. But if you have to watch snippets of your favorite show over the course of several days, it can completely destroy the viewing experience.

The future of TV starts today

I recently read an interesting post on the Televisionary blog about how the way we watch TV is changing dramatically with the advent of new and exciting devices.

How do you like your TV?

“Did you see the latest episode of Mad Men last night?” I can’t even begin to recall how many conversations I’ve had that started like that. The media we consume –whether it’s the music we listen to, the way we keep up to date with the news, or what keeps us entertained – is central to our daily lives. The TV perhaps most of all.
