Shop Talk - May 10
Macomb, IL – The panelists discuss what television might be like in 2020.
The launching point for the discussion is a column by Michael Stroud on TheWrap.com. He led a panel discussion on the issue during the recent NAB conference in Las Vegas.
Some possible developments include a la carte programming, vastly improved HD, and TV sets connected to the web.
Touch devices might replace remotes, though Shop Talk panelist Mike Murray wonders if some sort of implant device will be used by 2020.
Of course, great technological improvements won't matter much if the content remains as poor as some of the programming offered today.
