…while individual programmes may be the ‘buildingblocks’ of television, the schedule is the ‘architecture’, giving structure and meaning to ‘blocks’ of programmes on a given channel (Ellis, 2000 quoted in Casey etl al, 2002 :203)
Predictability is important, as one of the core aims of scheduling is to assist broadcasters to capturing the biggestaudience possible, thus maximisingadvertising revenues…perhaps the most important skill of a scheduler is to matchprogrammes to audiences watching at different times of the day (Casey et al, 2000: 204-205)
Does scheduling matter?
How important are traditional scheduling techniques (block-booking, bridging, hammocking, day-parting, counter-programming, tent-poling, theming etc.) in the era of IPTV, VOD and Internet TV services?
In addition to television programmes being made available online, many television programmes now also have websites which contains additionalparatextualcontent.
This can extend the narrativeworlds of the television programmes, provide viewers with moreinformation about the television programmes , and offer opportunities for interactivity.
