The Post-TV World

Kevin Spacey at the Edinburgh Television Festival:
The device and length are irrelevant. For kids growing up now, there's no difference between watching Avatar on an iPad, or watching YouTube on a TV, or watching Game of Thrones on their computer. It's all content. It's just story.
A "TV" is just another device with a screen in your living room. People now watch streaming video on different devices/screens around the world. According to Ooyala:
  • Mobile and tablet video share has grown 133% year-over-year.
  • PC viewers watched live video 11X longer than VOD (video on demand), for an average of 30 minutes per session in Q3.
  • Tablet TV viewers spent 25% of their viewing time watching videos more than 60 minutes long.
