TV’s transition from the living room to the world at large is complete.  Now, consumers can access it from their favorite coffee shop, on the train, and in the Connected Car.  Today’s consumers simply expect to enjoy these services as they move through the course of their day.  TV service providers, content providers, and advertisers are in a better position than ever, to build creative and compelling experiences that make the best use of this new-found reach.

The TV experience has become a mash-up of video programming complemented by content from the Web, social media and ‘unicast’ advertising.   From a service delivery and technology perspective, the default environment for the consumer experience is just as likely (for some audiences, even more likely!) to be on mobile smartphones, tablets, PCs and streaming video players, than it is to be on a TV set-top box.   Advances in content discovery, recommendation, speech and gesture recognition can further enrich the experience.
