Korea, the country with the world's highest broadband penetration: Popular video webcasters and user-generated content models

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter

Abstract

Korea’s webcasting industry was able to develop steadily because of its fast growing media markets and its advanced IT infrastructure. The media market is one of the most dynamic markets in the world. New media are being introduced aggressively by both market forces and governmental policies. While traditional media are still heavily regulated,1 less regulation exists in the new media sector. Often new media and telecommunications industries are launched under governmental protection. Audiences and readers quickly absorb new media services, causing financial difficulties for major newspapers and broadcasters. Most of the major newspapers have been experiencing financial losses during the past few years. Major broadcasters have been slowly losing audience share from over 90% to under 70% during the past decade
