Iím just saying - radio is hardly dead, even though itís place and itís programming is vastly different from the 1940s. Network TV is still quite profitable and watched by millions.

The industry is slowly changing, but I think itís human habits that allow (in part) old mediums to continue to prosper. Radio, for example, is still alive because itís the most convenient way to listen to music in the car. Similarly, houses are still centred around a television - and whilst that television continues to easily and conveniently serve traditional terrestrial tv in a Ďpassiveí setting itís likely TV will hang around. Plus network and cable television still make great content, which always helps.

I wouldnít be surprised if news television shifts online, however whether thatís a good thing or bad thing is hard to know....

Ohh damn I forgot to mention Disney.

Disney owns such an obscene amount of content.. they'll be one of the biggest streaming platforms.

Mainstream rock music is dead. Station formats changed to classic, rap and pop. But as far as I know radio is alive and well. Mostly for people who drive. I don't listen, don't have a car. And if I did, no rock stations. So I may think radio is dead, but really, that's rock. Ha.

Rock still lives but not on radio.

Wish I could turn on MTV and see this video for example



or this one



jus sayin.

And I like a bunch of stuff released this year

but not on any radio or tv. Gotta search new music out yourself now no more spoonfeeding by corporate America.

By "live" do you mean linear?

That is, "by appointment TV," as opposed to on demand?

I'm the producer of a TV show that airs on a linear diginet TV network, and I've given this question a ton of thought. Is linear programming dying?

Probably.

But maybe not. On demand streaming has its advantages, but there's still something to be said for the community "feel" of watching linear TV. That is, that you're sitting down to watch a show along with the rest of America (or Europe or wherever you're from) at an appointed time.

If linear TV goes the way of the dinosaur, it'll hurt the indie producers like me who heavily depend on the organic channel flipping nature of TV show discovery.

Yeah I was referring to by appointment tv, referencing an article like this one.. there are several to choose from that all cite the same statistic.. that demographics are shifting away from old fashioned tv to internet streaming.

This stuff is going to take a long time though it wont happen overnight

Apple is now rumored to be developing original content only available to device owners of things such as Apple TV.

Also I want to give a shout out to the starz original series The Girlfriend Experience.
Another great series available for streaming on a custom network
