Learn how this new aesthetic, interactivity, has given rise to the development of unique design practices and embedding of extended codes and syntax in the programs, and how bandwidth limitations associated with analog TV signals are eliminated, as cable, satellite and terrestrial TV network operators switch to digital bandwidth, providing more interactive content, globally.
