Most specialists argue that the future of TV lies within the internet. Television shows and networks will be sponsored by powerful corporations and teens will have to go to the Warner Bros. Web site to bring up this week’s episode of Dawson’s Creek. As with any media source, WebTV will be controlled by advertisement. Commercials will automatically take viewers/browsers to their web site, while television programs will only occupy a portion of the television screen.

     For the basic user, WebTV allows people to become more involved in their entertainment. While watching a sports game, you can look up any statistic that you want. If you’re watching an A&E special and want some background information on the subject, then the entire internet is at your disposal.
