The Future Of Television Begins Today

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Chief Technology Officer Jeremy Phillips and senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Eric and Jeremy take a peek behind recent data from researcher Nielsen on America's TV viewing habits. The stats might shock you -- the average American watches more than 32 hours of traditional television! Eric looks behind the numbers and discusses some key demographic advantages that could drive smart TV: namely that consumers ages 25 to 49 -- the ones with money to spend -- use television and time-shifted television at disproportionate rates relative to younger generations. That's another data point that illustrates the allure of smart TV, but only if television companies can simplify the experience as today's smart TVs are still excessively complicated.

In today's tech world, smart TV is getting all the attention, but it's really just piggy-backing off a larger revolution: mobile. The Motley Fool has just released a free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion Dollar Revolution" that details a "hidden" component play inside mobile phones that's also absolutely dominating the exploding tech market in China.
