The International Journal of Digital Television aims to describe and explain the transition to digital TV and address the social and cultural questions surrounding the future of television beyond switchover. This double-blind peer-reviewed journal brings together, and shares, the work of academics, policymakers and practitioners, offering lessons from one another’s experience. Content is broad and varied, ranging from a mixture of critical work on technological, industry and regulatory convergence, to the emerging wider socio-cultural and political questions such as audience behaviour, plurality of TV channels and television influence. The journal is rooted in a belief in the socio-cultural, political and economic importance of television and will conceive it as a platform for international and interdisciplinary approaches that open up new avenues for theoretically driven, historically inclined works that occasionally draw on scholarship adapting case studies and comparative analysis.
Potential issues to be addressed in future include, among others: the extent to which new media developments and changing media consumption require changes in regulatory philosophy and business practice; the extent to which globalisation, privatisation and deregulation alter the creative freedom and public accountability of media enterprises; whether digital TV actually increases choice and diversity or just offers more of the same and/or recycled programmes; concentration of media ownership and its effect on pluralism and diversity; national debates about the role of public service broadcasting in the digital epoch; comparative analyses of global TV formats; television for children; sports programming and televised sports rights.
