Hi all,
as some of you may know, W3C launched a month ago an Interest Group on Web  
& TV [1] [2]

The new group's mission is to provide a forum for Web and TV technical  
discussions, to review existing work, as well as the relationship between  
services on the Web and TV services, and to identify requirements and  
potential solutions to ensure that the Web will function well with TV.

As a follow-up from the discussions had in the first [3] and second [4]  
Web & TV Workshops, the IG chairs have decided to start a first Task Force  
on Home Networking Content and Services Discovery and Control [5]
The term Task Force here is to be intended as a light weight subgroup of  
the Interest Group. IG chairs are working to define more in details how an  
IG TF will work, and these rules will be published on the IG Wiki [6] as  
soon as ready. Nevertheless, given the wide interest in this area, we  
decided to start the HN TF and use it as a tracer bullet in Web+TV IG.

For the avoidance of doubt, since this is a Task Force inside an Interest  
Group, it will not produce a specification.
The aim of the Task Force is to produce (in a short time) a requirement  
document that one or more WGs can use to produce specifications that  
address those requirements.
Another goal of the TF is also to identify in which group(s) the  
specification work can be done (e.g. looking at the current ongoing  

The call for participants can be found here:   

The activity of the TF will be summarized using the IG wiki:  

Since topics discussed by this TF may overlap with other activities and  
technologies, we would really appreciate to gather feedbacks from any  
interested person/group in order to help 1)defining the requirements  
2)finding overlap with other groups 3)make sure that we don't discuss the  
same things in multiple places.

So, if you are interested, please consider providing your feedbacks,  
preferable directly on the IG mailing list [7]

Best Regards,
Giuseppe Pascale on Behalf of the Web & TV IG co-chairs
