Abstract

© 2017, University of La Laguna. All rights reserved. Introduction: The digitization in a context of economic and financial crisis gravely affected local public television in Spain. This article examines the dimension of its impact and the reasons that explain it. Methodology: The comparative analysis of the Andalucian and the Catalan cases allows us to show in detail the evolution of the two regions with a wider local public sector. Results: We contribute with abundant and original data that measure, for the first time, the impact of the crisis in the funding, human resources and contents in the public DTT-L sector. Discussion and conclusions: Conclusions show the weakening of the sector, the lack of strategies from autonomous governments and the heterogeneity of local solutions to a State-wide problem. Moreover, we point out the necessity of a research about the impact in the contents and the situation of these companies and workers.
