Television Industry News

Since the 1950s television has been a part of American life, with at least one television in almost every home. But the industry is changing as consumers viewing habits change. If you are interested in what is happening, sign-up for the television industry news email from Wiser. In the United States, like in other countries, television remains one of the main forms of media used by consumers. It is made up of the main broadcast networks which deliver broadcast channels. 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. This is creating pressure on subscription services to offer more choice to consumers, rather than the pre-set, take-it-or-leave-it packages that have been available to date.
