Digital streaming services have radically changed the way we write, produce, and watch television today. Streaming Television investigates the social, economic, and creative forces as a key element of the Creative Industries. The subject explores how streaming services shape contemporary screen storytelling and production practices and examines shifts in audiences’ own changing relationships to televisual formats, franchises, and genres. By situating industrial practice in geographical contexts, the subject also considers the ways that local identities are represented for international audiences and identifies the challenges that Australian screen creatives face in telling stories on global platforms. Through linking industrial transformations to storytelling, screen aesthetics, sound design, and everyday viewing practices, this subject reveals the radical transformations of the post-broadcast era.
