Shelly is the perfect tour guide to the future of the television and media business. He really understands how comsumers use electronics to consume media and has a wonderful way of making very complex issues seem simple --Gary Shapiro, President and CEO, Consumer Electronics Association

Format: Paperback
As someone who works for a major cable network, I can tell you that Shelly Palmer does a great job of breaking down the digital and linear distribution marketplace in this book. He is able to clearly outline the major strategic operators of multiple media distribution channels. Old media and New media have changing distribution structures that content providers are well aware of. Monetizing the new realties of distribution is at the forefront of most content providers as new revenue streams become more valuable to operating success. For anyone looking for a clear synopsis of why network distribution is changing and what might be around the corner, give Television Disrupted a read.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of two fine books that place TV in the context of the incipient digital age. Where Palmer, writing in 2006, sees TV as likely to retain its position as the dominant large-audience medium in our society, George Gilder's brilliant 1990 polemic "Life After Television: the Coming Transformation of Media and America and American Life" predicted, somewhat wishfully as recent history has shown, that top-down, oligarchical TV - a medium still controlled in 2013 by the corporations that own it - would be supplanted by the grass-roots, democratic phenomenon of the networked personal "telecomputer", as Gilder's archaic term for the PC.

Palmer's focus is entirely on dollars and cents, not democracy, but his book, full of technical detail that he reduces to useful "Key takeaway" summaries at the end of each chapter, shows how "networked TV" assimilates digital technologies in ways that keep it at the top of the heap of modern communications technologies.

Dispassionately, Palmer does acknowledge the democratizing power of digital technologies: "Ubiquitous, democratized production capability has flooded the Internet with content representing a very wide quality delta. As the gatekeeper's role is assumed by the proletariat, we may experience interesting sociological changes."

These very different books complement each other. Go back to McLuhan's Understanding Media and it seems to me you have most what you need to know modern communications technologies.

Si bien es una introducción muy general, algunos datos son interesantes.
No es un libro técnico, tampoco de negocios. Es un resumen periodístico de las nuevas tendencias en medios.

Talks about how iPhone "may" change the media landscape. Good as a history book, maybe, but the "predictions" from a decade ago never happened.
