There are so many new forces at play in the media world, and so much misinformation and wishful theorizing about them, that we feel the time is right to provide more objective evaluations in a series of thinkpieces. Each month we will review the current situation and/or future prognosis for important issues such as the rise of SVOD; reforming the TV upfront; getting better cross-platform audience measurements; programmatic buying for TV; addressable TV; and more. Harkening back to Ed Papazian's days as a columnist at Media Decisions magazine in the 1970s and 1980s, these monthly reports will use the same title, Mediology, the study of media. As appropriate, we will revisit subjects as new information or developments dictate.
To give you an idea of what Mediology will be like, we are making the first issue, "What's The Prognosis For SVOD?", available free of charge here.
If, after perusing our first issue, you would like to purchase a one-year subscription or preorder the next issue, "Programmatic Time Buying for TV?" please do so below.
Beginning with the June 2016 issue, individual issues of Mediology will be available for $125, and a 12-issue subscription is available for $875, a huge savings.
