NZ Patent No. 314912 A television viewer can select among a choice of available camera angles and audio feeds when viewing a sporting event such as a football game without changing the television channel. Audio, video and control data are transmitted in packetized data streams with control data providing a pre-assigned channel designation. A set-top terminal receives and processes the data streams according to user-provided commands. The terminal includes software which can be downloaded via the data streams or installed locally. The control data in the data stream is used to provide an on-screen graphical display on the television that allows the user to select the audio and video which corresponds to certain areas of the football stadium, for example.
