Public TV and digital change: TV technology – audience – formats

Valerio Fuenzalida


This article is a review about some changes provided by digital technology in television for a public channel. A public television is different from a television in favour of the current government. The authentic public television works for the public interest, and not for the government, neither for political parties or economic groups. It is maintained the necessity of improving the quality of information, using the possibility of a 24/7 informative channel. The article also supports a children’s channel, especially those made for kindergartens, since there are new TV programs that improve the social and affective intelligence of children; those new programs are considered the basis of a quality education and a better citizenship.
