Screen Future is about the people, technology, and economics that are shaping the evolution of entertainment. Blending social and computer sciences, media history, and engaging conversations with industry experts, author Brian David Johnson provides an informed and illuminating vision for what happens when TV and entertainment are transformed by the power and intelligence of computers.
With a relaxed and approachable style, Johnson takes us inside the technology and explores how our TVs, phones, cars, computers, and all the devices we love are being connected and reshaped into personalized entertainment platforms.
Screen Future explores the hard questions behind today's headlines and buzz: Is this the end of broadcast TV? Are the days of cable and satellite providers numbered? What role will government need to play? How do we pay for it all? And most importantly, what do consumers really want?
Screen Future is both a comprehensive analysis and an entertaining tour of the technical, economic, and cultural implications of a future that's coming faster than you might think.
