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...
