I was totally shocked to hear about the governments choice to eliminate Community Tv as of end 2015.

However, the claim that they will be moving online was definitely interesting. I think this choice will dramatically effect our ability as students to publish our work on TV and gain experience in the TV industry. Yet, the shift to online programs may in fact actually benefit us as the internet is undoubtedly becoming the most popular television and film medium. There are definitely two sides to this story, as on one hand this choice definitely limits young people and particularly uni students (such as those working with Channel 31), but on the other hand, perhaps it is helping to pave the way for the inevitable internet generation.
