TV and Media
What will TV look like in the future? How will we watch it? Where? By 2020, we predict that there will be 50 billion connected devices globally. Of these, more than 15 billion will be video enabled. TV will therefore be the next great technology transformation and Ericsson is ready to support the transition to a broader, richer – fully mobile – service.
Ericsson is enabling the future evolution of TV by creating harmonized solutions that give content owners, service providers, and network operators the agility to innovate, manage and monetize a new generation of rich TV experiences. With an open portfolio of award-winning products, our solutions span the TV value chain and our capability is unique. We offer industry-leading consulting, prime integration, training and broadcast managed services, giving us the knowledge and skills needed to advise, guide, support, implement and even manage the transformation of TV.
The Future of TV and Media
Ericsson’s Media Vision 2020 is our view of the future, created to paint a picture of how the TV and media landscape will evolve. It is underpinned by our unique position that spans the entire media value chain, across the convergence of media and telecoms backed by our deep insight into consumer trends. Through combining our understanding of the market with quantifiable research we have set out to help our industry recognize what it needs to prepare for the journey ahead.
Mobile and fixed IP broadband will transform TV by offering a path beyond the living room to 15 billion connected devices, and will radically change consumer expectations. At the same time, there are huge challenges around how we broadcast TV and Media to mobile devices. The future will demand the answers to fascinating questions around speed, capacity, spectrum allocation and business models. You could help us solve those puzzles and provide those answers.
The attraction is clear: join us at the beginning of a transformation, not simply delivering services but shaping how the entire sector will grow, develop and prosper in the future.
TV is one of the great, life-changing inventions. An invention with the power to change how we see things. But for TV viewers, how we consume content through broadcast media is changing forever. At the same time, how we pay for that content, how we access it and where we view it will change forever too. And when that happens, don’t just sit and watch – be one of the people who make it happen.

Could you join the Hackathon
On September 24 and 25 in 2015, Ericsson employees participated in a 24-hour TV and Media ‘Hackathon’. Teams from our offices in the UK, Shanghai, Zagreb, Sydney, LA and Montreal all contributed to the competition, generating ideas to showcase how we can use technology, innovation and creativity to solve complex development problems. Or to put it differently, it’s an enjoyable way to test their skills to the limit!
The Hackathon runs twice each year, organized by local developers and described as a ‘carnival for talents with energy and creativity’. We’re really proud of the way our people engage with the challenges. For us, it simply offers even more proof that innovation and experimentation are part of the Ericsson DNA.

Important notice: fraudulent job offers
It has come to our attention that emails and job adverts have been created and circulated by unknown individuals for the purpose of attempting to defraud candidates.
Potential candidates should be wary of approaches that appear to be offering a job for which they have not applied, especially if personal details or money must be sent in order to proceed with the recruitment. Neither Ericsson nor any commissioned third parties recruit in this manner. Such approaches are almost certainly fraudulent attempts to gain details of identity for illegal use.
Ericsson is taking all necessary steps to investigate this matter further.
