Abstract :

Television, Cinemas, Books and Radio stations have been very useful for capturing an array of entertainment to us since the early 1900?s. In short, the primitive modes of broadcast served as an outlet to the troubles of the world and for information needed in an instant. A huge revolution called the internet has changed the world?s views on how and when their entertainment is disseminated, and has totally become a bittersweet sensation. The challenges that traditional publishing companies, television networks, cinemas and radio stations face are microwaved desires of the public. No more are people purchasing books at stores such as the Barnes and Nobles and others that met their demise. Consumers justified space and convenience as a reason to support Ebook reading. Publishers cannot keep up with this phenomenon as many authors are now satisfying the thirst and desires of the reader. The film and television industries are not exempt from this shift. Now-a-days, the average person can use a smart phone and record an entire movie and or television show, and upload it to Social Media and become successful. With internet radio platforms and satellite radio, many radio personalities are making the change over drying out the terrestrial stations. One can even broadcast and entertain another individual across the globe with ease, something that was unheard of 15 years ago-especially on an AM/FM platform. You can even archive and download radio shows utilizing them for future references. What does this do for the economics of the industry? How does it affect us all as a whole? The benefits have been linked to convenience, affordability of advertising for the smaller guy, and a wider range in audience. We are now able to stretch our brands, shows, companies and talents across the globe in the matter of seconds. The disadvantages however, are linked to many businesses closing their doors forcing many into unemployment or underemployment. It also has opened the doors to more predators attempting to hack and commit fraud or destroy files and or documents on the internet. We are now in the age of being entangled in the World Wide Web.
