This year's theme includes all the traditional broadcast products and services but with liberal doses of satellite delivery, data broadcasting, streaming media, audio, infrastructure options, broadband, wireless, DVD, high definition video and falling prices. Still, attendees will struggle on how best to use the Internet, when will HDTV really start reaching the public with affordable products, greatly expanded programming choices as 2006 is only five short years away. Interactive television is back on the scene and many companies wanting your business. Let's see if they can deliver the products and content in a timely manner to earn your attention and dollars.
