TV, eh? podcast episode 156 – “Be There In A Flash”

Anthony and Diane are joined by the Dan(iel)s: Dan Speerin of Truth Mashup and Daniel Malen of The TV Addict to talk about the CRTC’s Let’s Talk TV campaign. We first discuss the Canadian International Television Festival, then sort-of answer the CRTC’s three questions:

  • What do you think about what’s on television?
  • What do you think about how you receive television programming?
  • Do you have enough information to make informed choices and seek solutions if you’re not satisfied?
We’ll continue the discussion with various guests in future podcasts.

Share

Anthony and Diane are joined by Stéphane Lachance as part of our new podcast series delving into the CRTC’s Let’s Talk TV campaign, asking Canadians about the future of television — our own mini “flash conference.” We sort-of answer their three questions:

  • What do you think about what’s on television?
  • What do you think about how you receive television programming?
  • Do you have enough information to make informed choices and seek solutions if you’re not satisfied?
We’ll continue the discussion with various guests in future podcasts.

Join the TV, eh? “Flash Conference” on the future of TV in Canada

CWC_eng

The CRTC is hosting a conversation on the future of TV in Canada and they’re asking for our help. That’s right, the Canadian TV industry is talking to the Canadian audience about something we have a hope of caring about. I’ll give you a moment to recover from your swoon. Whether they take action remains to be seen, of course, but they are listening so … baby steps. Also let’s keep in mind they’ll get flooded with contradictory opinions so taking action doesn’t mean our opinions will all translate into reality.

They’re asking three questions and want us to think creatively, speak openly, and be frank:

  1. What do you think about what’s on television?
  2. What do you think about how you receive television programming?
  3. Do you have enough information to make informed choices and seek solutions if you’re not satisfied?

You can participate in the conversation with the CRTC directly via their discussion forum, email, online form, phone, fax, mail or smoke signals. (One of those options may not actually be offered).

Or join TV, eh?’s discussion – call it a virtual flash conference — and I will report back to the CRTC in their post-conference report format. There are three ways you can join us:

  1. Let me know if you’d like to join the podcast Monday at 7pm PT/10pm ET via Google Hangout (for this live discussion I’m looking for people who do NOT make a living from the Canadian TV industry — let’s try to draw out and not drown out the audience opinion)
  2. Send me an audio file of your thoughts on one or more of the above questions that we can play during the podcast (audience and TV industry people welcome)
  3. Leave your non-anonymous comments on this post and I’ll read relevant excerpts on the podcast (audience and TV industry people welcome)
