In this paper, we review recent networking developments that will help create the next-generation social television experiences. These include revisiting the way networks are created and using social connectivity to drive physical connectivity and network virtualization. Multipath dissemination and reduction of interruptions will provide better quality of experience. Content protection and privacy are also essential to enable social commentary and metadata applications and will be briefly introduced. Examples of potential applications and results of field trials are also included.
