WaveTop is the first-ever free, advertising-supported nationwide data broadcast medium to deliver multimedia content - news, magazines, software and more - to the home via broadcast-ready PCs.
Quite simply, WaveTop has partnered with PBS National Datacast to send Internet content over the vertical blanking interval (VBI) - the pause between the transmission of TV images - of PBS's television broadcasts.
What does this mean to you? It means that if you have a PC equipped with a low-cost TV tuner, and if you are part of the 99% of the US who receives PBS via over-the-air antenna or cable, you will be able to get topnotch Internet content free - without slow connections and without tying up your phone line.
