Abstract: The expanding possibilities of digitalisation and the Internet have favoured a process of deep transformation in the media sector. Concurrently, independent initiatives emerge, attracted by the emerging possibilities of the so-called new media. Defying traditional approaches in media studies, Internet TV expands horizons in terms of participation, personalization and de-institutionalisation. In this study I have analysed the characteristics of an independent Internet TV project, Swansong TV, which originated in the context of the British visual arts. My objective is to establish how television characteristics are being redefined or reproduced in a new context, in a product where live transmission, pre-recorded video, web and online communication are simultaneously integrated and fragmented. I will also try to analyse the inherent tensions between local and global issues, producers and audience as well as the trans-generic nature of some programmes. In order to achieve the objectives of this case study, a qualitative approach has been adopted, combining interview, textual analysis and participant observation.
