Although the development in the field of communications medea has reached an unexpectedly high level over the last decade it is still lacking sufficiently wide spread user acceptability. This applies in particular to the brand new area of digital direct broadcasting communication satellites. Here, not only Europe but also the US suffer from such a development. But is it in fact the user who has not found the right applications for the new services offered or potentially made possible by the new media, or is it the fact that an insufficiently large infrastructure at a competitive cost is available to him? Personally, I think it is the latter.
