Abstract:

"Television in the Antenna Age is an overview of the medium's history and development in the United States. Integrating three major concerns - television as technology, industry, and art - the book introduces the complex, and often overlooked story of television and its impact on American life. It ends with a provocative mediation on the effect since the 1980s of competing technologies, the consolidation of media ownership, and the emerging aesthetics of twenty-first-century programming."--BOOK JACKET.
