|In the digital world, there is nothing special about broadcasting.
Broadcasting isnt a thing, or even a name for an industry. It is simply a way of delivering bits. Its a one-to-many way of delivering information, and it involves simultaneity. The many receive the information at the same time. Information flows from the one to the many.
The BBC has been transmitting digital radio since 1995. But you wont have heard it, because receivers arent yet on sale. Digital television is a different story. Digital TV has been onstream via satellite and terrestrially since the autumn of 1998.
