The book displays considerable attention to institutional detail and comparative analysis, and is well designed to provide a road map of current and future trends for policy makers and media activists, as well as students and future workers in the convergent media space."

What combination of TV, computer or mobile device will be employed? Which kinds of content will become commonplace? Rapid changes in technology and the media industries have led to new modes of distributing and consuming information and entertainment across platforms and devices. It is now possible for newspapers to deliver breaking news by email alerts or RSS feeds, and for audiovisual content to be read, listened to or watched at a convenient time, often while on the move.
