The Changing Face of Television

The Changing Face of Television – The Magic Roundabout

Watching television used to be a fairly simple enterprise—you turned on the set, selected one of 500 channels, and enjoyed your program. Now, television is changing in front of our eyes. More and more viewers are cancelling cable television, preferring to watch new online-only channels like Netflix or Disney +. An entire generation of younger viewers has given up on the TV set altogether, and instead watch programs on their laptop or their phones. And tens of thousands of kids and teenagers have started their own TV networks on YouTube, bypassing NBC, ABC, and CBS altogether. This presentation will look at these startling developments and explain why the old days of  simply “watching TV” are fast disappearing.
