Will the TV strike back?

EU citizens spend more and more time online, pulling out their smartphones on a bus stop to check the for the best connections, downloading TV series on their computers and watching various episodes at leisure and not according to the TV schedule, posting videos and photos on Facebook, YouTube etc. and then watching them on a connected TV as well. The TV and other media as we know it now may soon become extinct. The European Commission wants to explore to what extent the boundaries between consumers, broadcast media and the internet are fading away and what effect this brings about for the EU market. A Green Paper 'Preparing for a Fully Converged Audiovisual World: Growth, Creation and Values' invites stakeholders to submit their concerns and remarks on this subject by the end of August 2013. Based on the submitted replies the Commission intends to consider possibility of taking further actions. (Internet on TV, TV on Internet...)
