From broadcaster to multiplatform player – Public Service Television in the era of post-broadcasting

The technological development of the recent years means that today’s media landscape is characterized by digital media platforms and online services such as television on demand and live streaming. The digitization entails both new possibilities and challenges to the old public service media institutions, which were founded in an era where the media market was quite different from that of today.

This PhD project focuses on the oldest Danish public service media institution DR (Danish Broadcasting Corporation) and asks the question of how the television service of DR has been influenced by the digitization process. By investigating the range of programmes both quantitatively and qualitatively, the project seeks to shed light on how the public service task is being realised by DR on television in the period from 2005 to 2015.
