As a fan of numerous television shows and with aspirations of working within the television industry, I was both compelled and interested to explore television’s current place within society. With increasing digital technologies, television has become shaped by the viewers control over access, that is where and how. Tablets and mobile phones are rising as new devices that are becoming the standard television screens. The Internet has many capabilities that, arguably, surpass those of television itself. In seeking to answer the question of what is the television experience, this project will outline and explore current viewing practices, technological affordances and the convergence of mediums.
This website is my final multimodal project for Josh Stenger’s English 331: Digital Culture class.
