To make the people of the European Union more aware of the importance of the Information Society, the European Commission, Directorate-General XIII, has decided to support the "IS TV Show", which will be broadcast simultaneously all over Europe and reach an audience of over 300 million.

The event will take place next autumn during the Information Society Day 99. The IS TV Show will seek to illustrate how new information technologies and applications positively influence everyday life and benefit both citizens and businesses.

The project has been initiated and is financially supported by the Commission as part of its ongoing efforts to create a User-friendly Information Society. Furthermore, this pan-European TV show is conceived as the culmination of a two-year awareness-raising campaign led by the DG XIII, mainly through its Information Society Promotion Office (ISPO).

This campaign comprises a series of interlocking actions to prove that, beyond the technical and specialised aspects of the transition towards the Information Society, new technologies also open up new opportunities for people in their work, their social life and their leisure time.
