The way we consume video entertainment has evolved rapidly. First there was the inherently social phase of Friday nights at the cinema,and crowding around ‘the box’ with your flatmates or at your neighbours' house.

Now, in the age of social media, TV viewers can follow their favourite shows, share content and connect with fellow fans at any time before, during and after a program.
