Barry Cox on broadcast

The third and fourth of Barry Cox’s lectures on the future of broadcasting, as reprinted by The Guardian. The third concerns the failure of competition in digital TV in the UK and the fourth the implications of next generation media technologies. These lectures are the most interesting intervention on the future of UK media I’ve read for a long time. His prognosis is discouraging and his prescription radical but, agree with him or not, Cox is the most important independent commentator on broadcast in the UK now.

The first lecture is here and the second here.
