Television isn’t dying – it’s morphing. Slowly but surely, the linear broadcast model is transforming to include non-linear and IP distribution, second screen integration, social data, new guide and metadata systems, and a variety of new programming and business models.
Most polemics on the decline of TV are, in fact, based on bad data, faulty reasoning and an inaccurate understanding of TV economics to streamline.
The data actually points to a new golden age of TV for savvy creatives, executive and entrepreneurs.
At this week’s METal, Seth Shapiro will examine the essential differences between television and other media; the hidden economics of the TV business; and the forces that will shape the coming decade of television.
