This tutorial introduces the most significant findings in the multidisciplinary field of interactive digital television. The tutorial covers a broad range of topics, such as content distribution (e.g. broadcast, internet), user interface design/development, user interaction principles, user-generated content, and sociability. In addition, we discuss current commercial developments such as BBC peer-to-peer service, Google video and YouTube, as well as recent academic research in social TV, and mobile TV. We conclude with an agenda for further research.
