The world is becoming a much smaller place. With so many viewers engaging in geo-dodging behaviours, international digital developments are starting to have a direct impact on the shows and services we access locally. But even taking that out of the equation, the movements we see happen overseas are often echoed by local content providers. Even if it is a couple of years later. This week on Televised Revolution we’re looking at some big international shifts we’ve witnessed in the past week: Time Warner buy 10% of Hulu E! are planning five Facebook Live shows BBC make moves to limit iPlayer access to TV license holders in the UK.

Televised Revolution - Episode 429
Televised Revolution prides itself on its transparency. We don't want to lie to you. And for us to release a podcast that discusses anything other than Star Wars: The Force Awakens feels like a lie this week. It's not a movie, we hear you say. That's right. But it is the end of the year with little to discuss TV-wise. This week Dan and Simon discuss the fourth installment of Star Wars. Why do the films resonate with viewers? How is Star Wars like Mr Robot? How did Home Video prevent Star Wars from being little more than an event film? Please note - this podcast does discuss spoilers for The Force Awakens.
