Summary
  • "This book examines the economic, political, and technological forces that are shaping the future of broadcasting by comparing the transition from analog to digital TV in the United States and Britain. Digital TV involves a major reordering of the broadcast sector and requires governments to rethink the legal apparatus for the communications industry. Through an in-depth examination of the digital TV transition in these two nations, the book uncovers the political and economic determinants of the emerging governance regime for digital communications and discusses the implications for the development of the information society in the United States and Europe
  • The findings challenge much of the conventional understanding about the deregulation and globalization of communications. Contrary to what many predicted, the transition to digital TV has been a vehicle for reinforcing government control over broadcasting and, as a result, it has reinforced preexisting differences in the organization and regulation of communication in advanced industrialized nations."--Jacket
