Television Didn't Die, But Internet Distribution Revolutionized It

Beginning in the late 1990s, the technology and even mainstream press opined extensively on the coming death of television. A decade later—and a time that found television still very much alive—that theme evolved to instead pronounce the coming death of cable. Rather than demise, the emergence of internet-distributed television has both reinvented the medium and revealed how extensively our expectations and understandings of television are based not on the medium of television but on logics developed for its broadcast distribution.

My talk presents key arguments of my current book project, Being Wired: How Cable Transformed Television and the Internet Revolutionized It All with a focus on understanding what transpired when the long anticipated face off between "new media" and television finally took place in 2010.
