The numerous technical possibilities in the digitalisation of production, of distribution and storage of media content, the increasing significance of computer-based applications and services accompanying, and the interplay between various media and communication services, as yet only discernable in its beginnings, are all opening up scope for quite different scenarios in future television. In the public discussion, the television set is partly treated somewhat as a fossil, which will be replaced very soon by computers, mobiles and other multifunctional terminals. Then again, other people prophecy a great future for the television set – if it can integrate the essential computer functions and simultaneously enable access to online offerings and to the Internet.
