PBS NewsHour holds live Twitter chats each Thursday from 1 to 2 p.m. EDT. Join us on Twitter @NewsHour using the #NewsHourChats

You can watch a TV show on your smartphone, tablet, computer, and of course, on your television. The changing technology of TV, and how traditional broadcast companies are subsequently adapting, has been the subject of a PBS NewsHour series. NewsHour Weekend Anchor Hari Sreenivasan spoke with a number of people about the future of TV, including the chief of Aereo, a subscription service that lets viewers stream free-to-air TV via the Internet, Brian Roberts of Comcast and The Washington Post’s Cecilia Kang.

This week during #NewsHourChats we want to hear from you. On Thursday, Oct. 10 at 1 p.m. EDT, we’ll be talking about what you think the future of TV is, how social media plays into your TV viewing, and how disruptive the Internet is to TV. Join the conversation by following @NewsHour and using the #NewsHourChats or by watching below.
