Television itself is almost indistinguishable in its form, distribution, content, and uses from earlier network and cable/satellite modes. This workshop thus considers what the most pressing social, political, and health issues related to streaming television, binge-watching, and television's growing intersection with social media are. Research here will help clarify what to expect for television as a medium, and how we as users and researchers of television can best navigate a path forward in better understanding the transformational role of television in society, and indeed, television itself.
