As our Super Bowl post-game coverage winds down, we give you this write-up from Don Seaman, TVB’s manager of marketing communications, which is the non-profit trade association of America’s commercial broadcast TV industry. Here, the exec discusses his interesting, rather busy Super Bowl viewing experience.
I’m a Giants fan. I also work in the media industry. But it pains me to admit that up until Saturday, mine was among the 30 percent of homes that still don’t have HDTV. With the Giants in the Super Bowl, it became a moral imperative to experience the game in the best way possible, at least from my own living room. After all, I had a responsibility to the TVB to make this some cutting edge viewing research.
The thing is, in 2012 watching the game on your living room HDTV isn’t the only “best” way to watch the game anymore. And no, I didn’t spring for the full 3D TV experience. It’s bigger than that. Today, you can virtually have an “all-access” pass to the Super Bowl while still being hundreds of miles from the stadium.
