Internet-TeleMap Service Begins

On March 20, NHK started a PR program, the "Internet-TeleMap" service, consisting of video and audio information, at NHK's homepage on the Internet.
So far NHK Internet service delivers program information such as broadcasting dates, performers, and program contents in text and still picture format.
The rapid diffusion of the Internet has increased viewer demand for the delivery of fresher and more direct program information. To meet the demand, NHK started to begin this new "Internet-TeleMap" service with video and audio data promoting 18 new programs.
