                - Microsoft and Google

                - Accessing Paid-for Content via a TV Browser

                - User Interface Options

                - Detailed Product Roadmap

                - Role of Third-party Services

                This report is about internet TV, which involves the delivery of television programming to TV sets
                that are connected to the internet. The purpose of the report is to clearly explain how the internet
                TV market will develop by setting out a clear product roadmap and explaining how the key technical
                and commercial roadblocks will be overcome

                The report begins by clearly defining what internet TV is and how it differs from related concepts,
                like Web TV. The report clearly explains how to correctly view the internet TV market by
                considering the sort of services that will be enabled and the high-level software architecture that is
                needed to allow those services to be delivered.

                Then report then analyses to what extent established commercial broadcasters will be successful in
                controlling the distribution of their content on the internet and also the extent to which they will be
                successful in preventing third-party service providers from established themselves in the value

                Next, the report looks carefully at how third-party service providers will fit into the market, what
                functions they will perform and how they will perform those functions. As two examples, the report
                reviews how online EPGs are using standard web links, deep links and reformatted deep links to
                allow users to access streaming content that is provided by others. The role of video search engines
                is also analysed.

                The report looks in some detail at how internet TV services will be delivered on a multi-platform
                basis, to the TV set, the mobile device and also the PC. In addition, the report considers a new
                development which is where multi-platform concepts will be applied at the network end of the
                service as well as the user end.

                The report then reviews three important implementation aspects: the role of a TV browser, how
                users will access paid-for content on their TV set and also the user interface. Finally, the report
                reviews what the roadmap set out in the report means for Microsoft, Yahoo, Google and commercial
