Save TV From/With Broadband

from the more-than-a-boob-tube dept

A recent survey in Europe has suggested that the rise of broadband use is causing people to watch less TV. If the trend continues, TV networks will probably have to adapt by using broadband connections to make TV more engaging to audiences. The ground has already been broken with people voting for contestants in reality shows like American Idol. Next, it's just a matter of making TV even more interactive (and not just "enhanced"), by incorporating the creative use of digital communication (email, IM, video capture, etc).

    Bah

    Who cares about interactivity. I want good quality webcasts from around the world. My cable has only 40 channels and only a few are in English, French or Spanish.
