Write about the following three theoretical frameworks, Media Richness Theory, Media Dependency Theory, and Limited Effects Theory, and how they apply to Over-the-top (OTT) networks and the loss of Shared Collective Memory in society.

Problem

This study will examine OTT networks; impact on shared cultural memories or the collective memory shared by a group of people, considering that today’s advanced communication channels can allow instant communication regardless of geographical location. Through the semi-structured interviews, the study will seek to gain insights from the respondents regarding how they share information, experiences, and ideas on the content they have watched with the rest of the world. Considering that the OTT networks serve a global community, exploring these platforms and; their impact on shared cultural memories and values will be essential. Hence, it will be essential to determine how the change from sharing content with one’s social circle to sharing ideas and experiences on programs watched with the world affects the global shared cultural perceptions and memories.

Purpose

The proposed study follows a qualitative research approach using semi-structured interviews as the primary method. This study aims to understand how people watch video content on OTT networks, what content they usually watch, where they are watching it, and ultimately how they share that content with society. This study will use a framework and perspectives from the participants to view these users’ video streaming routines. The goal is to find participants subscribed to one or more video streaming services.

Theoretical Frameworks

Theory is a way of seeing, a way of describing an aspect of the world around us. Littlejohn et al. (2017) defined theory as “any organized set of concepts, explanations, and principles that depicts some aspect of human experience” (p. 7). Theories help explain and describe phenomena by providing conceptual frameworks for building knowledge. Lindlof and Taylor (2019) defined communication theory as “any systematically developed account of communication that seeks to explain what it is and how it works.”
