Third Service, Third Network: The CanWest Global System

Paul W. Taylor

Abstract


Abstract: The growth of the CanWest Global System as a third service in the Canadian Broadcasting System is examined with particular attention to its national infrastructure and non-network status. Through the internalization of international joint ventures and co-productions, CanWest Global might set a trend for Canadian broadcasters in a global, post-network, deregulated environment. Résumé: La croissance du Système Global CanWest en tant que troisième service dans le système de radiodiffusion canadien est éxaminée avec une attention particulière envers son infrastructure nationale et son statut de non-réseau. A travers l'internalisation des Entreprises Internationales Jointes et des co-productions, ça peut être un modèle pour les radiodiffuseurs canadiens dans un environnement mondial, dérégulé, et post-réseau.
