Could Huge Shifts in TV Viewing Equal Monster Returns?

Since 2008, the number of hours Americans spend watching some type of media, be it conventional television, streaming media online, or videos on a mobile device, has shot up 23%.

This is because Americans age 65 and over watch 48% more television than the average viewer. Blake stresses just how much this trend could boost content producers across several media types, and gives investors a few of his picks.

The television landscape is changing quickly, with new entrants like Netflix and disrupting traditional networks. The Motley Fool's new free report "Who Will Own the Future of Television?" details the risks and opportunities in TV. Click here to read the full report!
