Here is an example how i feel a DTH portal can interleave with interactive optical/wireless networks on land.
Let us assume Simtel has a DTH Channel. They broadcast MS updates from 10.00 AM to 10.30 AM. Linux updates at 11.00AM and Mac at 9.00 AM. All updates, some repetitive in gzip format and a advance xml feed indicating and enabling parsing of content on a digital device.
From 1.00 PM to 5.00 PM is subscriber time. “Your favorite software is ‘played’ at these times”. A user can use his phone or tablet to request a media. paid or free. All software will be broadcast at the time slot. With a xml feed/sitemap.
The user transfers the software from dth box to his computer using usb/lan. If he has been mailed dual layer decrypt keys he will be able to unzip the paid software. Else he can look thru the formatted/presented xml for any free software/media he would like to use.
DTH software providers can monetize using software developers to publicize their demo versions. Other firms from computers to toothbrush providers can give a “Media Promotion Pack” with wallpapers/freeware/video/audio/presentations and discounted/free offers.

Idea from Polly –
Make a AI Robot in the form of a Cartoon Parakeet. Something like polly the techno parrot below. When you ask a question or a unique term like “Solar Energy” or “Vitamin C” it can use its AI – Artificial Intelligence to read out a Wikipedia Page and if not Satisfied browse the web internally and suggest alternative pages to read out. It can have a Dockable Tablet Interface too for Visualizing its AI and Articles.
Who made Polly Shown on the right in CrossSection – Rob and Roberta Radtek
“Direct from the Institute of Robotic Technology comes this amazing interactive robot pet– POLLY THE TEKNO PARROT! Polly talks with people he senses around him just like a real parrot. Polly’s electronic cuircuits can detect motion, sound, light and even touch. He will snore off to sleep at night and wake up in the morning. If you pet him, he will “coo” and move his wings. ”
