It is common amongst media commentators to hear the view that the continued success of free-to-air ("FTA") broadcasters is a temporary phenomenon and that, like every other traditional medium, changing consumer behaviour and audience fragmentation will lead to a fundamental shift in the business model: in other words, linear TV - that is, watching TV "live" rather than using catch-up services is dead.
