- Connected TV set growth – Connected TV set shipments will grow to 70% during 2016, predicts IMS Research. By that year, more than 80% of connected TV sets shipped worldwide will have built-in Wi-Fi.

- Zeebox wins award – Zeebox was named the overall winner at the Connected TV Awards in London. In the “outstanding connected TV service” category, BBC iPlayer, BBC News connected TV app and JAZZTEL’s JAZZBOX came away with an award.
