Audience to Advertisers Misconception about the product To the viewer the product is the programming To TV executives the product is the viewer Strictly speaking TV stations do not make money by producing a programme that viewers want to watch MAKE MONEY BY SELLING AIR TIME ADS because advertisers want to hit shows with lots of viewers Money comes from selling advertisers the right to

Excessive Viewing 1A Perpetuating Violence 0 Critics agree that TV entertainment is too violent esp when violence goes unpunished or when a programme ignores the real life consequences of violent acts 0 Study premium cable like HBO most violent with 85 of programming including some violence Basic cable has 59 violence and network TV has 44 violence still too high for most critics 1A Perpetuating Violence Critics say How violence is shown and why it is shown is important When children are watching it can be dangerous to present violence as a way to solve problems eg CSI Children will think it is all right to use violence instead of other forms of problem solving It is dangerous to ignore real life consequences of violent action eg no injuries whatsoever It is also dangerous when a violent act goes unputhed Tom amp Jerry painful fall and yet emerge unharmed CSI okay injured before with bandages in next scene Point to show th Perpetuating Violence after doing stupid acts Programmes requiring Parental Guidance PG usually contain adult themes or content which may be sensitive in nature Should be aired after 10pm and accompanied on screen before the start of the programme by a viewing advisory describing the principal elements which have contributed to the rating including their intensity andor frequency eg quotDue to strong violencefrequent horror scenes etc parental guidance is advised wwmda govsg lB Reinforcing Stereotypes Extensive research into TV indicates that exposure to TV material increases the acceptance of ethnic racial and sexual stereotypes The US National Gay amp Lesbian Task Force have asked producers to avoid stereotypical depictions of limpwristed lisping gays and truckdriving lesbians lB Reinforcing Stereotypes One form of stereotyping that critics find annoying is making an ethnic minority invisible During recent TV seasons the NAACP noticed a lack of minority actors on the 4 US networks The networks responded by pledging to 1 Establish minority recruitment programmes 2 Add minority writing slots to successful shows 3 Do more business with minority suppliers lB Reinforcing Stereotypes The defense that TV producers point out is that stereotyping is important in storytelling because it allows writers to establish characters quickly and get on with the plot L quot 4 17 39 l H W m m um EllEllilllllE 39 himquot 1 MV 7 I 7 i r r I r 39 I lB Reinforcing Stereotypes quotInformation themes or subplots on lifestyles such as homosexuality lesbianism bisexualism transsexualism transvestism paedophilia and incest should be treated with utmost caution Their treatment should not in any way promote justify or glamorise such lifestyles Explicit depictions of the above should not be broadcast quotProgrammes should not make careless references to any class or group of persons as being inherently inferior Programmes should not encourage or in any way discriminate against any section of the community on account of gender age disability or occupational status 1C Lack Of Educational Prog To reach greatest possible audience most TV programmes are designed to make limited intellectual and aesthetic demands on their viewers However critics are concerned that the quality of lowest common denominator programming damages viewers intellectually amp emotionally 5mg 39lii ii 1 1 f if E1Iji1215ili l The FCC requires stations to air 3 hours of educational programming per week but critics insist that this is notenough 2 Parental Advisory Ratings Some critics are concerned with what TV seems to teach effectively violence sex

people still invest a lot of money in them 2 Technological developments change the way mass media are delivered and consumed 3 Mass Media both reflect and affect politics society and culture 1 Mass

production costs profits result 0 The media reinvest some of their profits to make improved products that even more consumers would want 0 Example TV networks invest their profits in new programmes that they hope will be hits newspapers publishers invest in colour w printing presses l US MEDIA PRODUCTS DOMINATE THE GLOBAL SCENE W H They KNOW how to make good TV and such 39 even though sometimes the ideas came from Britain like American Idol w Pop Idol which was 1st both violence and are available BUT the first is a bigger taboo in the US because people havetherightto beararms Asia chances of us getting ammo is remote Audience Diversity Big Business ability to produce BigBudget Popular Entertainment FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION In US freedom of expression allows media practitioners to create a wide range of media products on a variety of topics with limited interference by the government US notion of freedom has been embraced internationally especially by young people to rebel against tradition and oppressive rules This freedom is a mixed blessing however when it goes too far and when children are exposed to violence and pornography AUDIENCE DIVERSITY 0 A greater likelihood that US media products will be successful overseas because US is made up of a very diverse society 0 US media producers have increasingly involved people with different backgrounds in production decisions slide 23 BIG BUSINESS HIT 0 The big business structure of the US economy makes it possible to finance and produce expensive media products 0 The large size of the American market encourages bigbudget productions 0 Bigbudget productions do not always correlate to highquality but they do seem to produce the most popular entertainment worldwide BOMB a I spent about 200 mil and only made 30mil CULTURAL IMPERIALISM american tv is one of the most influential things around because more often then not people from other countries tend to copy whoever they see especially for the youths speech habits change the dressing what they deem to be okay terms US uses US is admired for technological achievements People in most countries enjoy US movies music and TV programs BUT many countries accuse US of cultural imperilism the displacement of their traditional culture with US culture US ideas and customs are often disliked and seen as the ultimate propaganda weapon MEDIA GROUPS 0 One way that media companies grow is through group ownership 0 Many newspapers TV and radio stations movie studios and movie theaters are part of a group where one company owns the same type of medium in more than one market area DISNEY SONY SPH news but they also venture in other things such as Clementi Mall they own it MEDIA CONGLOMERATES 0 Conglomerates are large companies involved in many different types of businesses 0 Most conglomerates form through a combination of vertical integration amp horizontal integration 0 Vertical Integration is a business model in which a company owns different parts of the same industry thus controlling both production and distribution facilities 0 NBC integrated vertically when it bought Universal Studios giving it both the Universal production facilities and the NBC TV network and cable channels to distribute the programming that Universal produces VERTICAL INTEGRATION TABLE 1M Vertiel Integratien Vertienl 39integrntien eeenre when eernpnn39iee ewn teeth

Eeemmeree eitee VERTICAL INTEGRATION 0 There is nothing illegal about vertical integration as long as it is not used to compete unfairly against other companies DOMINATION 0 Antitrust Laws can be activated when a firm vertically integrates for the sole of purpose of making it impossible for other companies to compete with them 0 Horizontal Integration occurs when a company buys many different types of businesses In this case the newspaper company doesn t buy a paper mill it buys a radio or TV station 0 Eg when MediaCorp buys a publishing company to produce books about its TV shows it is integrating horizontally HORIZONTAL INTEGRATION T ELE 1 Hari f I l Eng Harig nm Tniem n EZELJFE when E gaming Wf IE min EIIHEFEHI Wpaea DI buaineasea 115 in my DI the Fi W5 in this I II39JIE Banks

across media industries How strategic alliances and partnerships affect the process of management Introduction Vedia managers must understand basic market economies and the markets in which they compete for audiences amp advertisers Understanding the characteristics of the market helps management develop programming advertising and branding strategies Mergers acquisitions and partnerships affect the structure and management aspects of the media Media Markets Target market and target audiences reflect the goal of reaching specific types of audiences Media outlets try to attract enough of an audience to obtain a dominant share of a particular market Media Markets 0 A market can be defined in several ways 0 Market is defined as a place where consumers and sellers interact with one another to determine the price and quantity of the goods produced DualProduct Markets IVIedia firms function in a dualproduct market That is while media companies produce one product they participate in separate goods and services markets 1 DualProduct Markets In the lst market the good may be a radio format a TV programme or a cable channel Content is targeted to consumers and consumption is measured in different ways 2nol market involves selling of advertising Advertising prices vary according to audience ratings As demand for advertising rises companies can charge higher prices to increase revenues and profits Geographic Markets In addition to operating in a dualproduct market electronic media companies operate in specific areas or geographic markets In US Federal Communications Commission FCC mandates makeup of each geographical market by granting licenses to specific areas markets ranked according to size of population served e ia Markets Major mkts 150 0

deal about degree of concentration in the market IVIarket considered concentrated if revenues are controlled by a limited no of companies 1 Concentration in the Market 0 Usually measured in 2 ways in media industry 1 Calculating share of market using ratings data reached by each competitor Ratings data can provide estimates of degree of buyer concentration in market 2 Calculating of revenues or sales controlled by Top 4 or 8 firms Also known as a concentration ratio 2 Product Differentiation Refers to perceived differences among products To establish differentiation radio stations r I mauve offer unique formats call letters and logos quotr ou Talkin onair personalities and websites P r i W I 39Iri3r THE Hi lE TV stations differentiate their local programming especially in the area of E jffjmimm News Broadcast networks and cable WM services distinguish themselves thru Hutsanimal individual programme schedules 3 Barriers to Entry Obstacles new sellers must overcome before they can enter a market In media barriers often take the form of capital investment Equipment personnel programming etc require huge financial investment Sometimes barriers to entry may involve regulatory policy 4 Cost Structures Expenses needed to create products in market Total costs represent a combination of fixed costs those needed to produce 1 unit of product and variable costs eg labour which depend on quantity produced Economies of scale refers to the decline in average cost that occurs as additional units of a product are created 4 Cost Structures Costs associated with producing a newscast for a TV station costs of staff equipment and other resources By expanding and repurposing the news operation can provide additional newscasts early morning midday late news throughout the day as well as repurpose content across different platforms This creates economies of scale I if V quot m q Hm y lmHM a r 39 Eg jir39ll JUNE E quot e 7 six1W Era 715 1 1 w L IIIJun ill Hail PHquot t

Markets Several forces have led to a state of chaos across the mass media industries during the 19905 and early into the 21St century The 5 converging areas driving much of the change are 1 Economic conditions Technological changes Regulatory Forces Global Forces Social Forces P P39PUEV 1 Economic Conditions 0 Economic factors that affect the general business cycle 0 As economic conditions fluctuate they impact consumers as well as businesses 0 Eg if retail sales drop significantly businesses may be forced to lower the amount of money spent on advertising 1 Economic Conditions 0 Key economic indicators include the rate of inflation employment trends retail sales changes in interest rates amp tax laws 0 Managers need to monitor the economic conditions of the markets in which they

has about 700000 readers in Singapore today SPH started lVIediaWorks in 2001 at a cost of 50 million and by 2003 had run up a loss of 402 million In 2004 SPH and lVIediaCorp announced an agreement on merging the TV operations of the 2 companies 4 Global Forces Vedia industries produce goods and services that can be marketed around the globe The growth of trade blocks such as European Union EU NAFTA North American Free Trade Agreement and numerous other agreements have opened up new markets for trade and commerce 4 Global Forces Unlike in international markets US markets are almost saturated 99 of all households have a radio and TV receiver 97 of all households have a telephone 70 of all households have a computer 68 of all households subscribe to cable In Singapore 4 Global

succeed several things need to occur 1 The alliance must be in a complementary business 2 The companies must have similar business strategies 3 The companies need clear expectations and agreement about resources 4 The companies need to have compatible management styles Key Categories of Alliances E 1 Alliances to develop and market programming and content Companies are searching for partners to share production and distribution costs Alliances for Newsgathering User generated content has also become an important component of newsgathering Alliances to expand domestic and global markets By expanding markets alliance partners can increase brand loyalty for media products and capture a greater market share Key Categories of Alliances 4 Alliances to develop HD Radio The big challenge for HD radio is getting consumers to buy new receivers and working with automobile manufacturers to get HD radio as an included option in new vehicles 5 Alliances to develop wireless distribution Wifi It is the main driver behind partnerships to develop content eg Apps for handheld digital devices like smart phones and PDAs Key Categories of Alliances 6 Alliances to develop interactive TV Interactive TV will provide user the opportunity to engage in a variety of Webrelated activities eg shopping gaming etc while watching TV With the development of both a domestic and a global system of interactive broadband networks offering multiple distribution systems the potential for mediarelated businesses appears unlimited 54 Mergers and Acquisitions 0 With many of the huge media conglomerates merging concerns have been raised among citizen groups and regulators over such issues as concentration of ownership and the free exchange of ideas 55 Why So Many Mergers 39 Several factors have contributed to the large volume of media mergers and acquisitions since the 19805 Strategic Factors Financial Factors Convergence Valuation Ability to leverage content Tax advantages Barriers to new competitors

VCRs would ruin them Motion Picture Association of America fought legal battles to stop sale of home VCRs 1983 Supreme court ruled that video recording for private use was not an infringement of copyright Outcome of the Betamax case was that most families bought VCRs to record programmes but they also used them to play rented or purchased tapes which created a huge profit area for movie studios Adapting To Technology 0 By the time digital video discs DVDs were introduced in 1996 the movie industry saw them as a replacement for tapes and didn t resist as much When DVDs became recordable and people started downloading movies however the industry realised it had a problem Downloading from the Internet made it easy to pirate films and to distribute them illegally via file sharing programs In 2003 the movie industry declared war against file sharers To prevent widespread copying the movie companies decided to Encrypting DVDs so they couldn t be copied Distribute ads to dissuade people from downloading films Bring lawsuits against filesharing services such as Kazaa Hire private detectives to track those who put films online and assisted in crackdown on filesharers including raids on colleges Movie Downloading Lobby foreign govts to enforce int l copyright agreements Develop fingerprinting sys that encoded serial marks on every print of a film allowing enforcement teams to track down the theatres at which copies were made Work on alternate moviesondemand systems that would make it easier to pay for a download than to steal it Strike deals with cable
