Extension of the television domain to the digital age

Keywords: Television, digital television, internet


The term digital applied to television did not appear until we began talking about digital terrestrial TV (DTTV), that is, long after this information coding system had appeared in the world of television. This paper, therefore, examines the various changes performed in the television production by computer-generated images and special effects in the 1990s, the broadcasting with DTTV in the early 21st century, and channel delineation in the last decade. Based on practices and uses, it highlights the gaps which sometimes exist between technical possibilities and user ownership, particularly according to television genres. Then, television borrowing from social sharing sites and eventual relinearization are discussed before examining what platforms change in content consumption.
