Abstract

The purpose of the SAMBA project, running from January 2007 to February 2009, was to create a framework for allowing local communities and citizens (including low income population) to access community-oriented content and services by means of iDTV channels, specifically MHP over DVB-T. This paper summarises the project and the experiences gained from it.
