Smart phone device shipments will surpass the total number of computing and digital
media devices shipped in 2013. However, the challenge posed by smart media devices is not
about the devices themselves, but rather the software platforms (i.e., Apple iOS, Google
Android, Windows RT and others) upon which they run. They have become the basis for
establishing a whole new series of media applications that are fundamentally changing the
relationship that consumers have with their media service providers and the digital
content they want to access. They afford consumers more control in managing access of
their overall relationship with digital media content.

They incorporate many of the computing, Internet, cloud and social media-type
application features that help consumers find and access more of the type of digital
content they want to see.These two phenomena pose a number of threats to the existing
media service delivery business models, but, in particular, they shift some emphasis from
broadcasting digital media over delivery assets to streaming digital media through
over-the-top distribution assets, deemphasize the use of broadcast and digital media
devices technology as a means of controlling consumer access to digital media content and
establish a new context for media service providers to create direct relationships with
individual consumers.
