This chapter introduces digital television as part of a multi-channel environment in a European context. It argues that digital television in general is in its early stage, that European markets for digital television are fragmented, that development occurs in a country dependently, and that digital television’s development pace will have notable effects for the development of a multi-channel communication environment. Furthermore, the authors hope that understanding the development of digital television in a multi-channel context will not only inform researchers of the digital television and multi-channel communication in general, but also will provide some insight into the challenges they are facing on their way to maturity.
