Overview

Branding Television examines why and how the UK and US television industries have turned towards branding as a strategy in response to the rise of satellite, cable and digital television, and new media, such as the internet and mobile phone.

This is the first book to offer a sustained critical analysis of this new cultural development. Branding Television examines the industrial, regulatory and technological changes since the 1980s in the UK and the USA that have led to the adoption of branding as broadcasters have attempted to manage the behaviour of viewers and the values associated with their channels, services and programmes in a world of increased choice and interactivity. Wide-ranging case studies drawn from commercial, public service, network and cable/satellite television (from NBC and HBO to MTV, and from BBC and Channel 4 to UKTV and Sky) analyse the role of marketing and design in branding channels and corporations, and the development of programmes as brands.

Exploring both successful and controversial uses of branding, this book asks what problems there are in creating television brands and whether branding supports or undermines commercial and public service broadcasting.

Branding Television extends and complicates our understanding of the changes to television over the past 30 years and of the role of branding in contemporary Western culture. It will be of particular interest to students and researchers in television studies, but also in creative industries and media and cultural studies more generally.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Much more than joining a conversation, Johnson's (2001) research is starting it, making a case for a field of scholarly inquiry largely ignored thus far by television studies. Branding Television provides a solid theoretical foundation for further research, and one that fills in a gap within the breadth of work on television's industrial and economic development over the past several decades.' Darcey West Morris, Critical Studies in Television

'Catherine Johnson's book Branding Television contributes to television studies by describing, explaining, and illustrating why and how television industries have turned to branding as a response to changes in technology....The book draws on a rich and detailed knowledge of both British and American television industries during this period.....' Alison Payne, NECSUS: European Journal of Media Studies

'Branding Television analyzes different strategies from channel branding to quality schedule branding, from relationship branding to service branding and to programme branding in the UK and US landscape...a value of this present book is the plenitude of case studies: from different broadcasts of two different nations and addressing both commercial and public services...to compare corporate, channel/service and a program's brand as interrelated elements allows [us] to consider television as a cultural form and to understand its evolution from a different perspective.' Deborah Toschi, Cinema&Cie
