Here's the mission statement of the group, copied from
the page above:

----

This Interest Group has three missions:
1) It serves as a pool of experts on TV/Web integration, some of which will     
participate in the W3C working groups relevant to TV/Web integration.

2) It serves as a coordination body with the TV-specific regional standardization     
groups working on TV/Web integration.

3) It will prepare and review documents related to TV/Web integration.     
These documents should be produced quickly (typically within two months).     
Their purpose is mainly to point out specific requirements in the area of     
TV/Web integration, and to give rough ideas on how these requirements can    
be resolved.
     
It is not the main purpose of this Interest Group (or any     
W3C Interest Group, for that matter) to produce specifications. Production     
of specifications and W3C recommendations is reserved to W3C working groups     
(see definition of an  interest group in the W3C process).

Note that this interest group is open to non-W3C members.

Welcome again, and please also read the follow-up messages.
