    Put your hand against the screen: scheduling will become interactive;
    it will be far more about the viewer than about the broadcaster




    When the BBC broadcast its first public television signal – 80 years ago on Wednesday – the experience for viewers was utterly unlike that of 2009. John Logie Baird’s electromechanical system was housed in boxes that dominated rooms, yet now screens less than an inch thick hang on walls and “content” is broadcast, downloaded, streamed and even user-generated.

    Television has come a long way, but does anyone know where it’s going? On this page we examine the key themes that will shape television, from digital switchover to 3D, but the over-arching debate about how television and technology will combine in the future centres on one thing: interactivity.

    That takes a number of forms, however – interactivity can, it’s true, mean putting Facebook status updates at the bottom of the screen, but the far bigger development is in TV On Demand. ...

    Who watches most television?


    DESPITE an increase in entertainment choices, watching television remains as popular as ever, according to data from the OECD's Communications Outlook report. American households watch the box for over eight hours a day on average, twice as long as anyone else. Viewing has fallen in some countries. Turks reportedly watched an hour's less television per day in 2007 than they did only two years earlier, when the country was America's nearest rival as couch-potato king.
