  5. 5. S M A R T T V S A R E S C A R Y Many consumers face FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt) in their decision to purchase smart TVs. There is a temporal mismatch between the lifetime of a TV and the lifetime of a mobile device, mobile OS or mobile processor, the performance aspect of a smart TV while decrease precipitously over time tying relatively cheap 2-3 year life cycle smarts to an expensive 10 year product just doesn’t make sense. Consumers fear the planned obsolesce of their pricey TVs, compounded by the various comepeting companies and their proprietary products. 4

  7. 7. 10F O O T R U L E CONSUMERS WANT TO CONSUME Consumers for the most part want to passively consume when they are in front of the television, rather than create. Currently the most used apps on smart TVs, are those that deliver content to the television like Netflix and MLB.tv. Consumers haven’t been as receptive to apps that require active interaction. This has led to the idea of the “10 foot rule”: On Televisions content must be created for easy consumption from at least 10 feet away or else consumers will not use it. 6
  8. 8. DUAL SCREEN EXPERIENCE Millions of people are now partaking of the “dual-screen” experience -- watching TV while using a smartphone or tablet to share their thoughts about what they’re viewing and to look up related content, adverstising and other inforation. The result: a massive and rapidly expanding real-time focus group and promotional force, that disrupts many of the attributes a smart tv is supposed to have. 7

  11. 11. 1 0 ALTERNATIVES S E T - T O P B O X E S Set top boxes are small devices with simply a processer and a small amount of memory that connects to a home wi-fi conneciton, set-top boxes can have apps and stream content from services like Netflix for a low device price of $50-$150. Millions of these devices have been sold by the major players including, Roku, Boxee and the Apple TV. C O N N E C T E D D V D Many mid-grade and high-end dvd players can connect to the internet and can stream content from services like Netflix, and also have apps, similar to set-top boxes with the added functionality of playing physical media. V I D E O G A M E S All modern video game systems are essentailly high-perfomance comoputer systems, which means they can connect to the internet, have hard drives and can download content, to this end, many consumers have been placing their systems in the focums of their home media centers and powering thier televisions because of their ability to stream content from services like Netflix, play DVDs, and of course, video game media. Although Smart TVs connotate a very specific image, there are several devics that replicate a lot of the features promised by Smart TVs including downloading apps, and streaming content. They essentially tansform any “dumb” television to a “smart” one and many consumers already have them in their living rooms.
