About this book

This account of the global switch to digital television, from its origins to its emerging outcomes, provides an understanding of how digital television is converging with the Internet. It pictures a future in which the democratic role of the media, freedom of expression and democratic participation can be enhanced.

He is the author of Switching to Digital Television: UK Public Policy and the Market (2007) and the founding editor of the International Journal of Digital Television.

Reviews

"Starks presents a persuasive argument that with the right amount of citizen awareness and political management, there is clear opportunity to create a new and better order of television." - Gregory Taylor, International Journal of Digital Television

"The Digital Television Revolution is at its most valuable in the clarity of its historical account: the careful selection of detail and the analysis of the meaning of every twist and turn of digital history's early development..." - Michael Allen, Critical Studies in Television
