About the Conference

The advent of widely available broadband Internet will make possible a new stage in the development of television.  Internet radio stations already exist and it will not be long before television programming of traditional and new kinds is delivered to mass markets over the Internet.  This will pose major technical, capacity and operational challenges for the telecommunications and cable infrastructure.  It will change the nature and the content of television.  Will it result in entirely new types of programming?  How will it affect consumers, advertisers, content providers, networks, and service providers? How will it affect the global flow of information?  What will it mean for competition among telecommunications and media firms and for copyright and other government policies?
