Kids love video. But TV?

After a vaction with a 13year old that would have to be forced to put away the smartphone and come with us to the beach instead, that would consider watching TV boring because "nothing is on, can i have my WiFi back?" and that would consider LeFloid "the biggest star in Germany, maybe together with some football player" - a guy who (in German!) has over 200 mn YouTube views, close to 2 million subscribers, but hardly anyone over 30 would know him - so after that vacation, I can totally relate to an article with the following headline:

Me: What kind of shows do you like to watch on TV?
Daughter: What's a TV?
