free Internet pages via TV signals
Today’s top-line PCs are fully equipped and ready to function as true multimedia machines. Many PC users extend their machines with a TV card to be able to view TV pictures on the PC monitor, and digitize pictures for further processing. Such a combination of a PC and a TV card offers even more possibilities, however, such as reception and storage of Teletext pages. Recent developments in this field also allow Internet pages to be received from cable TV networks. This is a free service, as no telephone company or Internet Service Provider is involved. In Europe, the German TV station ‘ZDF’ leads the way with Intercast.
