When the VTT button is pressed on the remote control terminal 325 and the interactive device 301 receives a signal (602), the interactive device 301 reads the viewing area from the ROM 304, and collects channel information being received and time information (time stamp) when the signal is received. (603). When the area information, channel information, and time stamp are collected, a command requested by the related Web page is transmitted to the Web server (604). When the page information is received from the Web server (605), the screen of the display device 102 is switched from the television screen to the Web page display screen, and the Web page is displayed on the display device (607). After that, interactive communication is performed with the Web server via the Internet in the same manner as a normal personal computer operation (608). When purchasing online through interactive communication, settlement processing is performed (609). Accordingly, when the interactive communication is not electric commerce but simply information retrieval or information browsing, the settlement processing step is omitted. When the settlement process is completed, a confirmation screen is finally displayed and the process is terminated (610). In connection with step 604, when the Web server receives the area information, channel information, and time stamp from the interactive device, the Web server searches the related Web page using the area information, channel information, and time stamp as search keywords (612). . In step 613, interactive communication with the interactive device is performed. That is, necessary page information is transmitted according to a signal from an operation of a keyboard, mouse, or remote controller connected to the interactive device, or requested processing is performed on the Web server. Steps 614 and 615 are processing on the Web server for settlement processing.

  FIG. 7 is a modification of part of the processing flow of FIG. 6, in which a web server is operated at a broadcasting station, and information from the interactive device is only a time stamp. In other words, in a state where the interactive device can search for a page to be uniquely accessed from the area information and the channel number, the related Web page can be searched by transmitting only the time stamp to a Web server that is uniquely determined. Accordingly, in step 701, the interactive apparatus transmits a time stamp to a uniquely determined Web server. In step 704, the web server retrieves the associated web page from the time stamp and transmits it to the interactive device. When the interactive device receives the page information (702), it then performs interactive communication with the Web server in the same environment as a personal computer connected to the Internet (703, 706).

  FIG. 8 is an area information, channel information, and URL / IP address relation table stored on the ROM of the interactive apparatus for realizing the flow of FIG. In other words, this is information for searching the URL of the Web server based on the area information being viewed by the viewer and the channel information being viewed so that the Web server operated by each station can be accessed.

  FIG. 9 shows a configuration diagram of the Web server. As shown in FIG. 10, the memory 905 has area information (area ID), channel information (channel number), and page content related to a program in addition to information necessary for functioning as a normal Web server. In FIG. 10A in which a time stamp for storing the time at which the program is broadcast and page information (page ID) stored in association with these are stored, for example, in the area Assume that a viewer with ID 1 is watching channel 8. As the time stamp, T1: February 12, 1996 4:35 am, T2: February 12, 1996 4:45 am, T3: March 15, 1996, 8:15 pm, Page IDs P-1, P-2, and P-3 for specifying Web pages are stored in correspondence with the time stamps T1 to T3, respectively. In the channel 7 of area 2 in the figure, time stamps corresponding to the same page information are stored although the times are different. Paying attention to page information P-1, the program that was broadcast at 4:35 am on February 12, 1996 in area 1 is being broadcasted at area 2 at 4:35 am on February 14, 1996. Show. Even in such a case, when the area information, the channel number, and the time stamp are specified, it can be understood that the related Web page can be accessed.

  FIG. 10B is a table that stores a page ID and a URL in association with each other so that a related Web page can be accessed with an actually specified page ID. Similarly to the related table in FIG. It is stored on the Web server. Since the table information described in FIG. 10 is information used when searching a Web page, it is not always necessary to store it on the Web server if it can be accessed during the search.

  FIG. 11 is a diagram for explaining a broadcast program recording function during interactive communication, in addition to the description for merging broadcasting and communication in FIG. When attention is paid to the time stamp T1, the user switches from the television screen to the display of the Web page at this point, indicating that interactive communication is performed until T3. In this example, PC purchase is performed by interactive operation in TV shopping (1101). During the interactive operation (1102), the program being broadcast is missed, so the recording function of the interactive device is activated and the time information is synchronized with the recording of the program and stored in the storage medium ( 1106). When the interactive operation is completed (1103), the interactive apparatus can select whether to return to the time T1 and view the continuation of the program as a recorded video or to view the currently broadcasted program at T3. Actually, when the TV button 403 of the remote control terminal is operated, the output of the tuner unit 305 is selected as the video signal / audio signal, and the program broadcast at the time point T3 is displayed on the display device 102. In order to continue the recorded video from T1, the PC button 404 of the remote control terminal 401 is operated to read the video / audio signal from the recording medium and output the video / audio signal to the display device 102 for display.

  According to the interactive apparatus described above, fusion of broadcast content broadcasting and communication is achieved.

  In addition, since the TV viewer can display a related Web page from the program being viewed on the TV, it is possible to save the trouble of starting up the Internet terminal and searching for the related Web page.

  In addition, in order to search for a Web page related to the program being viewed, information on the viewing area and channel information of the broadcast content stored in advance for the tuner is read, and in addition to these, the Web page is searched using time information as a key. In order to search, the user can display a related Web page simply by pressing a button on the remote controller while viewing the program.

  In addition, when the program being viewed is a telephone shopping, the product purchase application screen is related as a web page, in the case of 100 hot springs, the accommodation reservation site is a related web page, and in the baseball night game, the batter is a related web page. The batting result information is displayed, and interactive communication similar to connecting a normal personal computer to the Internet is possible.

  In addition, since the time of the apparatus can be synchronized with the Internet time at a timing designated in advance by the user, it is possible to search for related web pages accurately at any time.

  Further, since the user records the program while interactively communicating with the Web server, the user can enjoy the interactive communication without missing the program.

  In addition, the user can select display of a program missed during interactive communication at the end of interactive communication with the Web server and display of a program broadcast at the current time when interactive communication ends.

  In addition, since broadcast content producers can easily link to Web pages, viewers' willingness to purchase is directly linked to purchasing behavior, so it can be used as an efficient advertising medium and increase sponsor revenue.
