Omnicom media agency PHD has launched a new book which aims to predict what 2016 is going to be like.

According to Media Week's coverage of the book, "2016: Beyond the horizon", you are guaranteed to see the following, 5 years from now:


  • Internet speeds of up to 100Mbps
  • YouTube battling Sky for the media rights to the Premier League 2016-2019
  • The cloud will store all of our music and videos
  • Most TVs will be connected to the internet, and will be fitted with Ultra-HD technology, with 8,000 vertical line resolution compared to HD's 1,080
  • A hologram of Simon Cowell in every home*


It's available to buy on Amazon - £15, and all proceeds go to Unicef.
