Television on the Internet: New Practices, New Viewers
2009 (English)In: International Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, ACM , 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
Television is increasingly viewed through computers in the form of downloaded or steamed content, yet computer based television consumption has received little attention in HCI. In this paper we describe a study of the uses and practices of tech-savvy college students, studying their television consumption through the internet. We find that users personalize their viewing but that TV is still a richly social experience - not as communal watching, but instead through communication around television programs. We explore new possibilities for technology-based interaction around television.
