  • the role of socio spatial context in the habit goal interface of Audiovisual Media consumption
    Poetics, 2014
    Co-Authors: Cédric Courtois, Frederik De Grove, Lieven De Marez

    Abstract:

    Abstract This article addresses the role of socio-spatial context in Audiovisual Media consumption. It does so by adopting a multi-paradigmatic approach that combines the Theory of Media Attendance with Domestication Theory. We propose a framework that inquires how goals and habits interface with each other as explanatory factors of consumption and how the role of socio-spatial cues can be understood. Survey results show that different socio-spatial settings are associated with distinct explanations by goals and habits. Moreover, follow-up interviews indicate that these differences are best understood when framed in the family dynamics of everyday life. The results confirm findings of classic research, albeit showing that the patterns from these studies are increasingly pressured by novel dynamics in the contemporary Media environment.

  • Composition and role of convergent technological repertoires in Audiovisual Media consumption
    Behaviour & Information Technology, 2014
    Co-Authors: Cédric Courtois, Lieven De Marez, Pieter Verdegem

    Abstract:

    This mixed-method research focuses on the growing appropriation of multiple screen devices for Audiovisual Media consumption. Based on survey measures, we distinguish three patterns: (a) maintaining the status quo, by mainly drawing upon television, (b) broadening up the repertoire, by extending television with computers and mobile devices, or (c) even replacing television by a computer. Next, we draw upon insights from niche theory, rationalising Media choices in terms of competing gratifications. This perspective is however too one-sided, as our results indicate that habit is a much stronger explanatory variable, especially when a broad range of devices are appropriated. In a follow-up qualitative study, based on Q-methodology, we found that the orientations towards what people seek in Audiovisual technologies are only mildly contingent with specific technology appropriation. This problematises the very substance of niches in the Audiovisual: as technologies are capable of the same benefits, their discr…

  • Country of Origin Principle in the EU Market for Audiovisual Media Services: Consumer’s Friend or Foe?
    Journal of Consumer Policy, 2008
    Co-Authors: Anna Herold

    Abstract:

    The country of origin principle, the cornerstone of the EU Television Without Frontiers Directive – to become the Audiovisual Media Services Directive – is often criticised as being insensitive to the legitimate national public interest to protect viewers – and consumers – of Audiovisual Media content. This paper seeks to demystify this pessimistic perception of the country of origin rule from the perspective of the consumer interest. It demonstrates that the possible negative repercussions of the country of origin logic for consumer welfare are mitigated in three ways: by specific derogations possibilities foreseen in the Directive in case of violations of the fundamental rules on protection of minors and of human dignity; through the margin of broadcasting control left to the Member States in the areas beyond those coordinated by the Directive, and by means of a new two-step anti-circumvention procedure introduced by the new Directive.
