CTCS 191 Final Exam Review Sheet 1: Media Regulation: Jennifer Holt, “Vertical Vision” – article. Vertical integration – one giant company owns lots of subdivisions (in hierarchal order), and uses them to satisfy each other’s needs. Horizontal integration - horizontal integration is the structure through which a media institution owns companies in only one sector of the industry (production, distribution or exhibition). - PTAR: required network-affiliated stations to reserve an hour of primetime programming (usually for news), instead of having four straight hours. - Fin-Syn turned out to be a much more critical ruling then this. - Fin-Syn: Networks don’t own the syndication rights to things aired on their network ( Seinfeld on NBC is rerun on Fox and TBS). - Fin-Syn attempted to stop vertical integration (syndicated show doesn’t become part of giant corporation). - Abolished in 1995, making way for Television stations and networks to emerge – production and distribution became one. - Telecommunications Act of 1996: helped vertical and horizontal integration by several factors, such as broadcast ownership, cross-ownership of TV stations and cable franchises, extended broadcast licenses, digital TV, and cable rates. -
