Description

Professor Catherine Johnson's new book, 'Online TV.' provides a guide to changes that have taken place since the arrival of high-speed broadband, tablets, smartphones and Internet-enabled TV sets.

"Trying to make sense of television in the internet era can be likened to the task of unravelling a tangled ball of wool. All the strands seem to be inextricably interconnected, but in ways that are not clear or visible and it can be difficult to know where to begin."

The book identifies and analyses four core "battlefields" where the industrial struggle for online TV is taking place - technology, intellectual property, interfaces and data. She argues that these battlefields should be high on the agenda of policy makers, regulators, industry and academics.
