About Ben Hargreaves

Hi, i'm Ben, i'm the head editor of content at Digital TV Selector and have worked within the telecommuications industry for nearly 8 years now. I've been particularly interested in the way digital television has evolved over the last decade or so, with the advent of video on demand, 3D and the interations that we make with social media whilst watching digital TV too. With so much competition, its interesting to see that content is becoming the king, and digital TV providers are continuing to bring in customers with a wide array of sports, movies and entertainment shows. When we are not talking (or writing about) digital TV at DTVS towers, I can be found wine tasting and cycling in my spare time!
