Should Netflix Shows Be Considered ‘Television’? And Tv Series Watched On A Different Medium Is Still 'Television' ?

Should Netflix Shows Be Considered ‘Television’? And Tv Series Watched On A Different Medium Is Still 'Television' ? | screen seriality | Scoop.it
Maybe we need a new word.
Mattia Nicoletti's insight:

I have been wondering for quite a while about this matter. The definition of television contents are bound to the medium. Once there were just two media with a screen, one big (cinema) and one small (television). Now the size of the screen is beginning to make no difference (because of the HD and the growing size of tv screen even the way how tv shows are shot has changed) and the border between television and cinema is blurring. 

 

In my opinion we should define what now we call tv shows or "video contents" (for The Oxford Dictionaries the word "video" means "the recording, reproducing, or broadcasting of moving visual images") or "small screen contents" (the size of cinema screens will be always bigger)

 

Then, there is another matter. we could define "scripted series" any tv series with a script but even seriality Is changing. House of Cards it is like a long movie chopped in parts. Is seriality bound to how the story is built or to how it is broadcasted? Oxford Dictionary for the word "series" has the following definition: "a number of events, objects, or people of a similar or related kind coming one after another". Maybe we could define seriality if we have more episodes opened and closed by titles.

 

Anyway, changing the definition of tv shows would have a strong impact on our culture because House of Cards is a tv show for a convention.
