Dropping ratings, especially among young people, and more viewing options mean broadcast TV is in a precarious position as it pitches itself to advertisers.
People are careful with their time considerably more now especially when it comes to so many additional forms of entertainment provided by smart phones, social media, mobile games, etc. If I have 1-2 hours of my life available to burn on a particular day and I'm faced with an archaic form of TV entertainment riddled with annoying commercials and low quality programming -- well then guess what... I'm definitely not going to tolerate it.
This is coming from someone that has long ago cancelled their traditional TV in favour of streaming.
We did the same thing over 10 years ago. TV programs are not worth watching and 20% of the "program" is advertisements,so why bother.
I've also noticed that Youtube is offering 500 channels..I remember having five hundred channels...
Out of all that,I watched 3 or 4 channels and more than half the time even those had nothing worth watching.
Add to that the lions share of the program was ads,which I muted,so for me,it's
a waste of time.
I'd say a big problem is ads and poor-quality programming. Competitors like Netflix etc have moved with the times; traditional TV hasn't.
I almost never watch traditional TV anymore. I don't see the point of it when I can watch Netflix whenever I want, it saves my place for me in what I'm watching, and there are no ads. I literally don't have time to sit down and watch TV at a specific time when a specific show is on, nor do I have the time to bother setting up recordings, even if it's automatic after the first time. My point is, I'm busy, TV should be available when I want it, I should not have to arrange my schedule around what's on.
It should be again bought in back
It’s in trouble because it’s still sitcoms. There’s a few deviants, but for the most part, Sitcoms had a place and it’s not in modern day.
