    Abstract

    In this paper we study and evaluate DVB-T broadcasting of newspaper content and user interface on a digital TV platform. The objective of the research was to study a) the data transmission reliability and efficiency, b) user interface and c) the user experience of the DigiTV Newspaper. The study was conducted in two stages. Fist a facsimile copy of the newspaper content was generated daily and transmitted in three geographical regions in Finland to test the service for three local newspapers. After this the layout was modified to improve the usability and user tests were conducted. The results show that the facsimile representation of the content can be enhanced by using wide format layout, video material and navigational aids. This kind of publishing channel can be a supplementary service especially when the newspaper distribution faces geographical challenges.
