Internet-connected and interactive TV is an emerging technology that offers new marketing opportunities for the arts and cultural sectors to reach audiences in their own homes.

There are two kinds of connected TV. The type that comes off a box like Virgin or Sky or alternatively there is the type that you watch in a browser.

To make it even more complicated it might not even be video – it could be games or internet related content.
