Television as a Social Medium New Usage Patterns and Future Scenarios Excerpt :

Seminar paper from the year 2019 in the subject Communications - Movies and Television, grade: 1,0, , course: Medien- und Kommunikationsmanagement, language: English, abstract: In the following work, current topics of the changed media landscape in the TV sector are described. In the further course of the work, the latest interactive film example from Netflix will be explained. And finally, there are forecasts for what recipients must expect in the future. As soon as we get used to social networks and Internet-enabled smartphones, the cosiness of the living room is over. The leading medium TV is dethroned, Bill Gates even says: consecrated to death. In fact, television is upgrading and becoming a super-medium: highly networked, social and interactive, often in 3D, omnipresent, multifunctional and tailor-made. More and more people are doing without a television set. They consume moving images via new channels, that have become available in the last ten years. The Internet makes TV reception on computers and mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, notebooks) possible and paves the way for two new developments: TV as a mobile experience is becoming reality; the parallel use of TV and the Internet is increasing. This simultaneous use of media has risen rapidly in recent years and shows the need for additional information for the TV experience. Usage patterns established on the Internet, are transferred to television. Compared to the many services, that dock to the moving image on the Internet, the linear television program as we know it today looks rather old-fashioned.

Watching the Internet Excerpt :

This book deals with the Internet’s influence on television. The traditional value chain has been transformed, giving rise to new forms of television that foster user generated content. We no longer dream about interactivity, but participation. Accordingly, the “digital natives” like to tag programs and films in the cyberspace, each conveniently tagged so that other users can find it. Although many questions have yet to be answered, this decade’s motto may be “the tag is the medium”. However, on-demand television is unlikely to replace mass TV. The Web 2.0 has brought an end to the “my TV” concept of the dotcom age and may put “our TV” in its place. These changes pose serious problems. The industry is facing the real threat of revenue cannibalization because current online business models are not financially rewarding. The Internet is not yet a profitable market for programs that require additional revenues to advertising. To date, the box office, video and premium television have been the main sources of revenue of the audiovisual industry. This book explores the factors at play in this shift.
