"Television as Digital Media is an important and timely collection. Offering strategies for mapping a fast-changing digital terrain, it is poised to stimulate an important conversation between television studies and the television industry." -William Uricchio, Director of Comparative Media Studies, MIT


 "This is a terrific collection that opens up exciting ways to think about relations between old TV and new digital culture without reifying either of those terms."-Lynn Spigel, co-editor of Television after TV: Essays on a Medium in Transition


In Television as Digital Media, scholars from Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States combine television studies with new media studies to analyze digital TV as part of digital culture. Taking into account technologies, industries, economies, aesthetics, and various production, user, and audience practices, the contributors develop a new critical paradigm for thinking about television, and the future of television studies, in the digital era. The collection brings together established and emerging scholars, producing an intergenerational dialogue that will be productive for any student or scholar seeking to understand the relationship between television and digital media. Introducing the collection, James Bennett argues that television as digital media is a non-site-specific, hybrid cultural and technological form that spreads across platforms such as mobile phones, games consoles, iPods, and online video services, including YouTube, Hulu and the BBC's iPlayer. The essays in this collection demonstrate the historical, production, aesthetic, and audience changes and continuities that underpin the emerging meaning of television as digital media.
