nteractive digital TV is becoming a reality throughout the globe. The most essential aspect of TV broadcasting is enhancing the interaction experience for the viewer. To this end, we explore the potential of introducing semantics in the distribution, processing and usage of the media content. We propose a smart iTV receiver framework capable of collecting, extending and processing semantic metadata related to the broadcast multimedia content. A system architecture is presented along with examples of services to illustrate the combination of semantic metadata content, user preferences and external data sources.
