It’s been a big year for the connected TV—even Google jumped into the market—and it’s looking like it is going to get even bigger. DisplaySearch forecasts that by 2013, 100 million connected TVs will be shipped, up 546 percent from 2009’s 15 million. The connected TV opens up the door for consumers to access content beyond traditional broadcast TV to include Internet content and online video. While the pay TV ecosystem grapples with the threat that over the top content brings, it’s using devices like the Apple iPad to infuse cool apps for consumers to interact with their TV: Comcast has shown how the iPad can program a DVR and search for shows. And networks are going straight to consumers with the ABC and Hulu apps. But so many questions remain: It can be difficult to find stuff to watch with 300 channels, but what about when connected TVs can access thousands of Internet channels? And what about that elusive remote control that’s lost again somewhere in the family room—will we be using another device? This session will cut through the clutter of the ever-growing connected TV landscape to help form a clearer picture of what’s coming up on those three (or four) screens in your home.
