There’s no doubt we are in a golden age of TV. I can’t recall any other time in history when the quality of TV was as good as it is now. But that doesn’t mean television itself is winning.

Streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and LoveFilm in the UK are gaining massive traction and changing audiences’ perception of how TV should work.
