Will broadcasting be supplanted by the Internet? Will “convergence” lead to a single delivery system for multimedia services? Which broadcast delivery systems (terrestrial, satellite or cable) will become dominant for digital TV? Will the reduction in costs of computer hardware affect broadcasting? Will computers merge with TV sets? This article attempts to answer such questions, both by looking “sideways” at the world of computers and the Internet and by analyzing some technological trends. 

Figures from this paper
