Conventional television, purveyor of sitcoms and game shows, is merging with other electronic media, like the computer and the telephone, giving viewers more choices, control and participation in broadcasting than ever before. Split Screen provides a background on these new technologies and looks at how business and policy issues are affecting Canadian viewers.
Prepared for the Friends of Canadian Broadcasting, Split Screen attempts to demystify changing technologies and the threats they pose to Canadian society.
