Double Oscar-winner Kevin Spacey has challenged TV channels to give “control” to their audiences or risk losing them at his address at the James MacTaggart Memorial Lecture at the Edinburgh Television Festival.

The Hollywood star, whose recent foray into television – House Of Cards – has been a commercial and critical hit after it was released on streaming service Netflix, said there was a danger of “thinking that something which is working now will necessarily work a year from now”.

The actor said that way of working “demonstrated that we have learned the lesson that the music industry didn’t learn – give people what they want, when they want it, in the form they want it in, at a reasonable price, and they’ll more likely pay for it rather than steal it”.

Spacey, who starred in and was also executive producer on the show which was nominated for nine Emmy Awards, warned the audience of media executives that “labels” were becoming meaningless and they risked being “left behind”.

He said: “If you watch a TV show on your iPad is it no longer a TV show? The device and length are irrelevant … For kids growing up now there’s no difference watching Avatar on an iPad or watching YouTube on a TV and watching Game Of Thrones on their computer. It’s all content. It’s all story.”
