    Broadband News Aggregator



    There are two main factors contributing to a need for an effective news interface for interactive TV. First is the expectation of the modern viewer- young, educated, and technologically advanced. Second is the potential integration between TV and the Internet in future interactive TV platforms. As the television and Internet continue to rapidly converge, this application will take advantage of the encyclopedic and participatory affordances of this new medium. This project proposes a broadband interactive TV application that delivers video news from multiple sources. The system architecture rests on a news aggregator in order to retrieve news feeds from multiple sources. By automatically retrieving updates, viewers can stay current with new content soon after it is published.
