Television is one of the widely used media while Internet is a new and very fast developing interactive medium. The convergence of both leads to interactive television. One of the benefits of the interactive television is possibility to interactively search for TV content over Internet and create the electronic program guide (EPG) from the gathered information. The EPG is used for review of available programmes and for selection of interesting ones for recording or downloading from a video server. The paper describes possibilities of Internet search for TV content for digital interactive television based on TV-Anytime specifications. The described approach is an attempt how existing client-server search and a new dynamic and distributed search in peer-to-peer (P2P) networks could be combined together that both search concepts would benefit from each other. Because the search results are controlled by a client they are more reliable and with less fake information.
