FINANCIAL TIMES SURVEYS BROADCAST AND COMMUNICATIONS MEDIA
Published October 4, 1994
This morning's FINANCIAL TIMES carries an extensive survey of new communications media that covers cable, business television, pay television, UK cable, radio, satellites, and the Internet. Raymond Snoddy, survey editor: "When it makes little difference whether business news is obtained from a computer screen or a TV screen, it is clear that the importance of the new media goes far beyond extra channels of entertainment. There are frequent signs that the long-predicated covergance between entertainment, computing and telecommunications is at last happening, even though the electronic superhighway probably excites politicians more than consumers at the moment. Cable, satellite, and video cassettes will have a growing number of rivals to communicate words, pictures and ideas" (FINANCIAL TIMES, 10/4).
