I propose the following changes to make sure that coverage is complete:

  • Articles such as radio and television should emphasize the technical developments in a field.
  • Business models should fall under broadcasting.
  • Separate programs should get their own articles.

Although I know something about North American broadcasting, I don't know much about European, African, or Asian models or history. Please feel free to fill out as much information as possible.--GABaker


Shouldn't somebody mention that broadcasting originated as an agricultural term referring to a method of sewing seeds? --Ben


Fire away, Ben. --GABaker== Possible Project ==

I was looking around Wikipedia and found that most of the few radio-related articles we have here are stubs. So, I thought I might propose a Wikiproject on Radio Broadcasting. I thought maybe this would be a good page to see if there's an interest. If you think it's a good idea or would like to help out leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks.

Issues with current version[edit]

Somebody removed several sentences from the beginning of the article, and now it looks very odd. I think it needs to be reverted, but I'm not really sure what the intent was. Maybe someone else knows what should be going on here... JByrd 13:02, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

I think I fixed the funding part, but now it just doesn't scan as opposed to not being readable... Someone please stage a revert! MonstaPro 04:05, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

Funding[edit]

Is there any difference between "radio and television licenses" and "fees charged to all owners of TV sets or radios, regardless of whether they intend to receive that program or not"? Pit-yacker 00:05, 26 August 2006 (UTC)


Airtime as a concept of mobile phone billing?[edit]

Airtime redirects here. But isn't "airtime" also a concept used to determine the size of your bill in the US-cell-phone market? Shouldn't there be a disambiguation page? Or am I totally mistaken?

(US cell-phone plans don't distinguish between incoming and outgoing calls and you are billed for both, whereas you are only billed for outgoing calls by European mobile phone contracts, incoming calls are free, as far as I have understood the system) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Soylentyellow (talkcontribs) 2007-01-21

Although, generally speaking, in Europe you only pay for outgoing calls (this isnt always true) "air-time" is also used by mobile phone operators in Europe. AFAICT, this is particularly true on "Pay-As-You-Go" contracts where a user pays in advance. In common usage I would have thought the use for mobile phones was the more common use of the term "air-time". However, is this more a defintion that belongs in a dictionary?

I removed the link to the Wikibook on Marketing. In my opinion the seealso section needs some cleanup. Momet (talk) 06:43, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Other meanings[edit]

I came here in search for broadcast address for MAC Ethernet layer, and found it very frustrating that this article monopolizes the term “broadcast” for TV/radio shows solely. It would be nice to mention that there are other meanings, aside from “Broadcaster”. 213.234.235.82 (talk) 11:55, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

on air?[edit]

Narrowcasting[edit]

   I rem'd

Broadcasting to a very narrow range of audience is called narrowcasting.

which is irrelevant to the accompanying article, and is confusing bcz it uses "narrow" in an irrelevant (interest) sense that is not the opposite of the (geographic) sense of "broad" that is involved here.
--Jerzyt 02:49, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

Censorship[edit]

A section on censorship and an accompanying article on the Censorship of broadcasting is sadly lacking. -- Alan Liefting (talk - contribs) 23:32, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Incomplete Content to be added to content[edit]

The work "Broadcast" or "Broadcasting" has origins that are hundreds of years old. Farmers used to broadcast their seeds. The term broadcasting is actually centuries old. It originally referred to a planting method in which a farmer scatters, or broadcasts, seeds over a wide area of prepared land. During the earliest days of commercial radio, several engineers in the Midwestern United States decided that the concept of broadcasting fit their own concept of radio transmissions. In the same way that farmers broadcast seeds over a large field, radio transmitters broadcast their signals over a large area of reception. This is especially true with amplified modulation (AM) radio waves, which are sent out through the open air in all directions from the transmitting tower.
