TV without the TV

Netflix have made quite a splash with House of Cards, and now Amazon/LoveFilm are joining in with internet-only broadcast content. Who needs a traditional broadcast route when you can use the internet? It raises an interesting question about the concept of the ‘TV channel’. Is LoveFilm a channel? Or a broadcaster with many channels? What about YouTube? If you’re studying the TV industry you should be pondering these matters carefully.
