Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The concept of interactive television is not new. Teletext was introduced in the analogue television in the 80's, leading to a limited interaction with our television set to obtain information about the telecast schedule, the weather, and so on. But nowadays this concept goes even far away and a new and improved way of interaction with the user has been developed. The early private broadcasters, as Canal+, were the pioneers in adopting this new form and today are preceded by their digital formats. As a consequence of the Analogue Switchoff the Project known as Digital Terrestrial Television was developed creating a public digital format television with more features, in competition with private broadcasters. Among this features one can found interactive menus that, as in the case of the private broadcasting, give information to the user and let them adapt the product to their own needs. This user-television interaction is today known as interactive television.show more
