As a Television student the area of convergence that interest me most is broadcast television and the internet, 20 years ago both existed separately but now seem inseparable. I can’t imagine not having the option or freedom to watch Sherlock on the BBC I Player at a time that I choose. TV Networks allowing their content to be viewed online was just the beginning of course with the launch of Hulu in 2007 which specialised in streaming American cable television online after the day they aired. However the real game changer in my opinion is Netflix and Amazon because they produce their own content and I can see more online television networks emerging doing the same. I don’t believe broadcast television is dying and if it is, it’s an incredible slow death. Therefore the growth of online television production should to more job opportunities for professional who want to work in television. It will also has an effect on the types of television shows being made for example the BBC and Channel 4 are limited by regulations about explicit content like violence, blood, gore etc. I couldn’t imagine the BBC or Channel 4 making a television show like The Walking Dead or Netflix Daredevil, although maybe the launch of BBC Three online may change this. Another aspect of online television that distinguishes it from broadcast television is the option for fans to binge watch due to full episodic seasons being released at once.
