Future of TV

I haven’t found time to fully digest Ben Thompson’s series on the future of TV, let alone think through the implications for the UK model, but they make fascinating reading. I found myself nodding in agreement, frowning as I pondered how the ideas translated (which typically means: how the existence of the BBC distorts things, for good or ill), and occasionally grimacing in disagreement.

Well worth your time, and mine.

[edit: also worth a look is The Verge’s response to Amazon Studio’s first round of TV shows. Spoiler: they think they suck. Television, it turns out, is hard. Who knew?]
