Media Convergence : Network Set-up Box

Nowadays, the Internet plays a very important role in people’s life . The Internet drive the technology revolution of the past five years . Set-up box is produced by the combination of television and the Internet .

A set-top box is a device that enables a television set to become a user interface to the Internet and also enables a television set to receive and decode digital television (DTV) broadcasts. DTV set-top boxes are sometimes called receivers. A set-top box is necessary to television viewers who wish to use their current analog television sets to receive digital broadcasts. It is estimated that 35 million homes will use digital set-top boxes by the end of 2006, the estimated year ending the transition to DTV.

Therefore , what are the advantages of set-up box ? In my opinion , there are tow things that are good for audiences . Firstly , set-up box means money saved . People can download thousands of drama , film or TV show to set-up boxs , you will always have something free to  watch . Secondly , “watch what we want , when we want “, it’s means people can use network set-up box to watching TV online . In other words , the content and time are depend on audiences .
