Are Internet platforms ruining Turkish television?
The journalist of the Hurriyet magazine Cengiz Semercioğlu is sounding the alarm, calling on the TV channels to come to his senses and have already begun to do something concrete.
Erdal Beşikçioğlu works for Blu TV, Çağatay Ulusoy, Beren Saat, Mehmet Günsür work for Netflix. These are the names that made the ratings some time ago. Now they are on digital platforms.
The viewer gets used to the short, high-quality, well-thought-out series and no longer wants to spend 130 minutes of his life on television projects. Stars run to the Internet, viewers run after them. What will remain on television in Turkey? Half stars and no-names. Who will look at them? The audience of free TV channels begins to decline. Turkish television comes into a tailspin, but no one wants to change anything.
