The one where Merrill Barr gives us the 101 on the US TV landscape – who owns what, just what is syndication and how to navigate the Broadcast/Basic/Premium Cable/Streaming environment.
Basically – it’s messy.
Merrill does well to help us wind through some of the history as to how we get to the spot modern US TV is in, speed bumps and all along the way. Sure there’s about 300 million more Americans than Australians but they’ve still got it pretty good when you accept just about everything is in HD, there are a billion choices and it’s only getting better from there. That’s not saying they get it right, though…
There’s even some 2015 Emmys nominations chat right at the end to bump out the episode length a little (well, I know you appreciate the value).
Your listening and downloading of this ep of #MTTpod is really appreciated and I’m grateful to you for doing so. Please also say hi to Merrill on Twitter and tell him you hear him here!
