There is a lot of conjecture about Internet Television, how we will consume it and how it will affect us. This entertaining presentation was given at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco in November 2010 to debunk some of the myths (sorry, I have somehow forgotten who did this presentation).
You know you’re old if…
- You think you’ll need a box to watch Internet TV
- You think you’ll need apps to watch Internet TV
- If you want to watch TV on your TV
- If you want to watch TV with other people
- If you watch more than 36 hours of TV per week (in which case it’s ambient, running in the background most of the time rather than being content that you elect to view when you wish)
- You think that Internet TV is “amateur hour” and that no web originals are professional
Viewing habits have changed remarkably in recent generations. Internet TV will result in an even more dramatic shift in media consumption.
