With the advent of digital networks, the world of TV as we know it -- mass-media broadcast -- is undergoing tremendous changes. The increase of the number of available channels, the convergence of TV and internet, and the proliferation of new interactive services will transform the TV box function from a program watching device to a portal towards all kinds of content and services.
The next TV era will revolve around sophisticated set-top boxes integrating viewing, listening and recording functionalities, connections to several sources (internet, cable, satellite), games, as well as communications features. In order to cope with the complexity of such an environment and efficiently choose among the huge amount of available alternatives, the users are in need of an advanced user interface to provide them with an intelligent assistance.
