Digital Television: Sharpening the Focus on Children. Media Now, Spring 2004
Espejo, Eileen; Miller, Patti
As television transitions from analog to digital, questions arise as to how to best meet the needs of children. What are the potential benefits of digital television? How can the technology be used to serve children and families, while at the same time protect them from possible harm? The transition to digital television offers a unique opportunity to shape how this new technology can serve our nation's children. This issue of Media Now, a Children Now newsletter, focuses on digital television and its implications for kids and the programming designed for them. Also included in this issue are: "Programming Ahead of the Game" (Tom Ascheim); and "Digital Television Policy Recommendations" from the Children's Media Policy Coalition. (Contains 28 endnotes.)
