to catch up with their favourite shows at a particular
time slot. This is why they end up telecasting episodes
several times a day. Also, these episodes are available
online within a couple of hours after the first telecast.

experience. Viewers had no other choice than flipping
away channels. However, the apps like Hulu, Netflix,
and Amazon are empowering consumers to watch any
program, and at anytime. Now consumers can get on
to their feet and interact with the TV programming.
These trends will enable M&E companies to enrich
their relationships with consumers. To maintain these
relationships the M&E brand players should invest in
technologies that allow them deliver best user-
experiences to their consumers.
