I love watching television. But hasen’t searching for good content on television become as difficult as looking for a needle in a haystack.There are 1000s of channel to watch however a very few of them are actually relevant to us.Research shows that only about 20% content is appealing to 80% of the people. I wish we did not have to go through 100% haystack and someone could filter that 20% content for us.
Also isn’t it very common these days to consume information on our second screen – To be watching a particular show on TV and researching about the same on our mobile devices. Research suggests that more than 75% people are watching the second screen while watching television. Also more than 35% people are consuming content on 2nd screen while watching television.The second screen has become an integral part of our process of consuming content on television so much so that the TV watching experience feels incomplete without some information from the second screen.
