This report presents an overview of the distribution formats for instructional television. While broadcast means of distribution have ben the mainstay of instructional television in the past, there are at least three television technologies that are considered as appropriate delivery mechanisms: over the air transmission, including broadcasting, instructional television fixed services, and satellites; wire or cable transmission, such as cable television and common carrier services; and copy technologies such as video tape, video cassette, video disc, facsimile, and print Braille. Each of these formats is discussed and considerations for their use for educational programming are presented. (Author/RAO)
