I have been catching up on my reading over the last few days and was browsing the March copy of Management Today, in which Chris Allen, the CEO of ITV was interviewed. In the interview he boasted that ITV2 is now the most watched digital channel in the UK, eclipsing Sky One. Its an illustration that something other than channel is important.
He also discussed convergence and defended his purchase of “Friend Reunited” as a platform for convergence. He says,
Four or Five years from now, nobody will differentiate between the screens in their home – they will do everything
I do hope so. The home area network is clearly a problem domain requiring solutions design expertise.
Now how can I pipe my multi-channel into the bedroom?
