With the advent of Netflix, Hulu and other forms of true on demand digital content providers, the extinction clock for telivison as we know it, is ticking more rapidly than ever. That doesn’t mean that television stations themselves aren’t valuable commodities.

Via L.A Times:

Tribune also would have five CBS affiliates, three ABC affiliates and two NBC stations. The company would own 14 stations in the nation’s top 20 markets. The deal would benefit the company by increasing its footprint in such important political battleground states as Ohio, Virginia, Colorado and Pennsylvania.  In past election years, stations in pivotal states have attracted a wealth of campaign spending.

Our great democracy, once again at work.
