About Jane Stott

I'm Jane, a content executive at Digital TV Selector. When i'm not arguing with Ben and the rest of the team about digital TV, I can be found perusing Westfield mainly and spending my wages on things that i'll ultimately one day return as they 'make my hips look too big'. Writing for Digital TV Selector is great fun, especially when you consider how much the industry has moved in a short space of time, we went from high definition to 3DTV almost in the blink of an eye, and are already discussing where we want to be next! Over the last few years, the way we interact with digital TV has also changed, in most part due to things like Facebook and Twitter, but also through new technology such as TiVo, PVR's, Freeview and even broadband. These are amazingly fun times for digital TV and it's great to be part of such a fast moving industry!
