Triaging the streaming wars, edited by Robert Alan Brookey, Jason Phillips, and Tim Pollard

"This volume considers the different implications of the rise of streaming services, and their particular acceleration during the COVID-19 pandemic. Exploring the significant disruption caused to the entertainment industries by the rise of these streaming services, a team of international scholars examine changes to labor issues and compensation, which were central to the conflict between the Writers Guild of America (WGA) members and their agents, the broadening divide between networks and affiliates, the significant consolidation of the media industry resulting from Disney's acquisition of Fox ahead of the launch of Disney+, and the variety of business models behind these services that defy the traditional advertising models and standard revision procedures. This thorough and multifaceted look at this rapidly growing section of the entertainment industry will interest academics and students working in film and TV studies, media industry studies, digital media studies, business, and communication studies"--, Provided by publisher
