The Complete Guide to Interactive TV

Interactive TV is what's possible when digital television, computing, and Internet technologies converge. It's as varied as point-and-click ordering of the clothes worn by a favorite star…a stock ticker across the bottom of a movie-on-demand…messaging friends while your watch a show…and a stunning array of other applications. The projected profits are staggering--as is the fear that the computing industry will get there first.

Now is the time to learn about interactive TV--what is can do, how it does it, and who will use it. Jerry Whitaker, a well-known DTV expert, paints the full interactive television picture in this friendly, not-too-big, not-too-technical introduction. You MUST read it if…


*you're in the television or cable industries
*you're a technology professional or IT consultant
*you're developing interactive TV software or business models
*you're interested in datacasting, access, or subscription solutions
*you produce or sell entertainment, news, or access, or are thinking of doing so
*you cover the TV, Internet, or cable beat as a reporter or financial analyst
*you want to know which companies lead in interactive TV
*you read DTV and ATSC manuals but didn't understand them
*you can't afford $80,000 for an MBA in media
*you're a technovideophile
*you simply want to be up to speed on this fascinating new technology of key importance to consumers, and the broadcasting, entertainment, news, communications, and computing industries
