My current research centers on the challenges to the dominant business model of broadcast television by the digital context (cf. audience fragmentation and audience autonomy). This includes a consideration of:
a. the renegotiation of the audience as commodity by various stakeholders (from an exposure model to an engagement model)
b. the various strategies devised by television to deepen the loyalty of audiences
c. emerging alternative revenue streams (incl. online pay-per-view)
