If you are interested in what is happening, sign-up for the television industry news email from Wiser.

There are also satellite and cable services. The main networks are NBC, CBS, ABC and Fox. The changes taking place in the industry are largely being driven by the way consumers want to view TV. There is a growth in on-demand services like Netflix, Apple TV and Amazon Prime.
