Book Description :

This book will explore the questions raised by the technological developments that have encouraged the multiplication of TV channels. TV is moving through a period of rapid change. Governments around the world are switching from analogue to digital forms of transmission to further expand the amount of content that TV signals can carry. At the same time, competition for eyeballs has also grown from outside that traditional marketplace with the emergence of the Internet. The roll-out of broadband and increased bandwidth has had the greatest impact on television because online technology can readily convey the same content. All these changes have created a great deal more competition for viewers within the traditional TV marketplace. The Internet has proven to be especially popular with young people who have adopted its applications to a far greater extent than their elders, though even the latter have now begun to take up online activities in significant numbers. Are these audiences the same? Do people make a choice between these two media or do they use them both at different times and for different reasons? Can television utilise the Internet in profitable ways to enhance its market position? Will television have to evolve from its current state to provide the kinds of content reception services to which people have become accustomed in the online world? If it does need to change to survive, will this nevertheless mean a radical new configuration of content and the disappearance of ‘channels’ with fixed, pre-determined programme schedules? Examines the implications of new interactive communications technologies for the way people will use television in the future Presents an analysis of changing styles of television viewing and changing orientations towards television Examines the growing importance of the broadband internet as a source of information and entertainment

Book Description :

The book explores the complex interconnections between media, political organisation and society. This is particularly important in a period when politics seems to be in crisis. This 'crisis' can be seen in problems of trust affecting political institutions and politicians, the apparently widespread political cynicism and apathy of audiences and citizens, and the perception that processes of globalisation are undermining the bases of contemporary democracy and public discussion. Old cherished views and ideals seem dead and there appears to be no clear vision of the future. This pessimistic view has been expressed, most cogently and explicitly, in the 'end of politics' thesis. Rather than taking this view the book investigates in detail how the use of media and new technology affects politics and how the consequences vary across national societies and regions. It focuses in particular on the way new technology poses problems, but also offers potentialities and solutions, for political actors of all sorts. To this end particular attention is paid to various political uses of the internet. The book closely analyses how political parties, pressure groups, governments and social movements explore and develop the range of media forms and rhetorics and assesses the aggregate consequences this has for political life. The book argues that key versions of the 'end of politics' thesis are simply too pessimistic about what we can hope for from the future and imply an unrealistic nostalgia about the past. Rather it puts the media-politics relationship into the broader context of a culturally complex and changing contemporary information society..

Book Description :

Internet TV is the quintessential digital convergence medium, linking television, telecommunications, the Internet, computer applications, games, and more. Soon, venturing beyond the convenience of viewer choice and control, Internet TV will enable and encourage new types of entertainment, education, and games that take advantage of the Internet's interactive capabilities. What Internet TV is today and can be in the future forms the context for this book. Arising from collaboration between the Columbia Institute for Tele-Information (CITI) and the European Institute for the Media (EIM), this volume investigates the advent of widely available individual broadband Internet communications and their impact on the development of Internet TV. Editors Eli Noam, Jo Groebel, and Darcy Gerbarg have collected seminal papers by leaders from the U.S. and European media and technology industries that offer a critical look at the impact of interactivity on television content, and address the need for media organizations to create interactive programming in this untapped realm with unclear consumer interest and desires. Each section of the volume fleshes out key issues and concepts of television and the Internet: *Part I, Infrastructure Implications of Internet TV, discusses questions about the required network capacity for various quality grades to deliver individualized broadband to homes. *Part II, Network Business Models and Strategies, addresses the business challenges of making Internet TV a financial success. *Part III, Policy, examines policy issues, including copyright and regulation. *Part IV, Content and Culture, reviews available content, those creating it, and how consumers view Internet TV content. *Part V, Future Impacts, considers future global prospects for Internet TV content creation and distribution. Internet Television is an essential resource for professionals and scholars in new technology and media studies, media policy, telecommunication, broadcasting, and related areas. It is also appropriate for graduate seminars in telecommunications, media and new technologies, and broadcasting and the Internet.

Book Description :

This concise book explores the wide range of topics at the intersection of politics and the Internet. Recognizing the changes in the Internet over time, Klotz provides an innovative analysis of online access, activities, advocacy, government, journalism, and social capital. The politics of the Internet is considered along with politics on the Internet. A highlight is the in-depth discussion of cyberlaw that provides an accessible framework for understanding the legal treatment of key issues such as music file-sharing, privacy, terrorism, spam, pornography, and domain names. Examples from the 2002 midterm elections and the early 2004 campaign fundraising success of Howard Dean add currency to the debate about the impact of the Internet on democratic politcs. The author conveys the vitality and humor of Internet politics in a way that readers will enjoy. From impassioned debate about imaginary legislation to the animal rights group PETA's lawsuit taking peta.org from 'People Eating Tasty Animals, ' Klotz brings the colorful history of the Internet to life. Written from an interdisciplinary perspective, the book is infused with original longitudinal data, examples, online resources and landmark events that reveal how the Internet is enriching both public and private life.

Book Description :

This report from the Select Committee on Communications calls for a reduction in the time allowed for advertisements on commercial broadcasting channels. Existing regulation of the market is no longer relevant in the digital age and doesn't serve the best interests of viewers. The Code on Scheduling of Television Advertising should be harmonised to level the playing field between public service and commercial broadcasters when Digital Switchover happens in 2012. It is the Committee's view that a reduction in the quantity of advertising airtime that broadcasters are allowed to sell would greatly improve the viewer experience and would be fairer to the public service broadcasters - ITV 1, Channel 4 and Channel 5 - who are limited more than all other commercial channels at the moment. All channels should be allowed an average of 7 minutes per hour, appropriate peak time maximum to be determined after research from Ofcom. The Committee has also looked at specific regulations which affect ITV 1, known as the Contract Rights Renewal undertakings. These undertakings should be removed as long as they are replaced with binding undertakings from ITV plc to invest an appropriate proportion of any additional revenues from advertising in creating UK originated programming and training. The Committee is calling on ITV's bosses to deliver on the commitments they have made to the Committee - to increase its investment on quality, UK originated programming in return for the removal of CRR and also to invest in training within the industry.

Book Description :

Television is changing almost beyond recognition. In the battle for consumers, social media sites, smart phones and tablets have become rivals to traditional linear TV. However, audiences and producers are also embracing mobile platforms to enhance TV viewing itself. This book examines the emerging phenomenon of the second screen: where users are increasingly engaging with content on two screens concurrently. The practice is transforming television into an interactive, participatory and social experience. James Blake examines interactive television from three crucial angles: audience motivation and agency, advances in TV production and the monetisation of second screen content. He also tracks its evolution by bringing together interviews with more than 25 television industry professionals - across the major UK channels - including commissioning editors, digital directors, producers and advertising executives. These reveal the successes and failures of recent experiments and the innovations in second screen projects. As the second screen becomes second nature for viewers and producers, the risks and opportunities for the future of television are slowly beginning to emerge. Television and the Second Screen will offer students and scholars of television theory, industry professionals and anyone with an abiding interest in television and technology, an accessible and illuminating guide to this important cultural shift.

Written by an expert in media, popular culture, gender, and sexuality, this book surveys the common archetypes of Internet users—from geeks, nerds, and gamers to hackers, scammers, and predators—and assesses what these stereotypes reveal about our culture's attitudes regarding gender, technology, intimacy, and identity. • Provides exhaustively researched and richly detailed information about the interplay between media representations of Internet users and gender, politics, technology, and society that is fascinating and fun to read • Presents findings that suggest that in spite of the Internet being so prevalent, technophobia is still an inherent subtext of many pop culture references to it • Considers how the vast majority of the portrayals of Internet user stereotypes are male—and evaluates how these male-dominated roles shape and are shaped by popular attitudes about sexuality, technology, intimacy, and identity • Written by Lauren Rosewarne, a widely published expert in the areas of modern media, popular culture, gender, and sexuality

The Telecommunications Act of 1996 and the Federal Communications Commission's Local Competition Order are just two examples of the continuing monumental and far-reaching changes occurring throughout the telecommunications industry. At the 1996 Telecommunications Policy Research Conference (TPRC) -- an annual forum for dialogue among scholars and the policymaking community on a wide range of telecommunications issues -- leading industry and academic researchers presented results of their research and insights in key areas of activity, including: *interconnection and competition; *Internet growth and commerce; *Internet regulation and control; and *the political economy of telecommunications regulation. The best of the 1996 TPRC papers are included here, representing the forefront of research in the telecommunications industry. The third in an annual LEA series of volumes based on this important conference, this collection reflects the rapid economic, technological, and social development of telecommunications. It also reflects the current state of research thinking on this issue and provides a foundation for further telecommunications policy analysis.

Book Description :

ABSTRACT: In today's multiplatform video environment, this study sheds light on the use of the Internet as a video platform. When a new medium emerges in the marketplace, one of the prevailing goals of related research is to identify the factors that predict consumers' decisions to adopt the medium. However, most of these types of studies tend to focus on the new medium alone. In reality, though, the new medium coexists with traditional media; consumers' use of, or attitude toward, traditional media may influence their decision to adopt the new medium. Furthermore, the introduction of the new medium might also influence consumers' use of traditional media. Recognizing the fact that that new and old media coexist in the market, the overarching aim of this study is to examine how the Internet and television, as video platforms, are interrelated with respect to consumer demand and time.

Book Description :

La forma de consumir televisión está cambiando a gran velocidad. Las narrativas transmedia, el consumo en dispositivos móviles, la gamificación, las llamadas «segundas pantallas», la implicación con redes 2.0 y la audiencia social representan un reto, pero también ofrecen enormes posibilidades para los creadores de contenidos audiovisuales. El concepto de televisión basada en el broadcasting cede su protagonismo a los contenidos con implicación en social media y concepción transmedia. Este libro nos acerca a las nuevas rutinas productivas y al diseño de estrategias acordes con este nuevo paradigma comunicativo, y lo hace combinando los referentes académicos con aportaciones directas de la industria de la comunicación y el análisis de casos de éxito para ofrecer a los lectores la posibilidad de comprender en qué medida está cambiando el audiovisual, los espectadores y las dinámicas sociales en torno a la televisión.
