The chapter focuses on the history, theories and concepts, and current research surrounding the intersection of television and geography. The advent of new digital services and the increasing importance of television’s role in the electoral process have intensified research into the unique relationship between television and geography and the creation of new televisual spatialities. The chapter will look specifically at research based around the different modes of consumption including streaming, DVD and BD. New modes of production are also discussed along with televisual technologies (both at the theoretical and the empirical levels). Discussions of the literature surrounding television geography are put into the context of feminist spaces and spaces of difference, semiotics and affect, advertising and geography, the economic aspects of televisual geography, and the historical intersections between television and geography (especially the political aspects of electoral television).
