Introduction: All or nothing? From public service broadcasting to public service media, to public service ‘anything’?
Abstract:This special issue brings together expert articles on the ways in which different European countries are tackling the difficulty of defining the role of public service broadcasting (PSB) and PSB institutions in the new media ecology. It contains a selection of articles that have a look at the regulatory and policy answers to PSB’s changing role in society. The introduction to the special issue frames the articles within the broader choices and ideological frames on the future of PSB, elaborating on the possible strategies for PSB developed within social-democratic and market failure perspectives.
