The digitalization of TV brings a promise of democratization through the entry of new providers which will contribute diversity to the radio spectrum. However, international research suggests that this system reproduces the same virtues and defects of the analog environment in a digital one.
This book addresses the distance between that which exists and that which is possible, offering legal arguments, theoretical reflection and international experiences related to thinking about public policy on the implementation of digital TV as a point of inflection with respect to the possibility of introducing important changes. The author suggests that the legal structure that guides this process must have adequate citizen participation mechanisms at its origins and during later monitoring and issues a call to ensure that this change contributes to the introduction of new stakeholders in the television system.
