This paper presents some contributions towards Interactive Digital Television, focusing on interactivity for citizenship in the context of Brazilian Digital Television System Terrestrial (SBTVD-T/ISDB-TB). The paper is focused on the necessary infrastructure, applications and services that can help with the challenges of promoting digital inclusion in Brazil. In the infrastructure issue, the BluTV (Bringing All Users to the Television) is discussed, specially in terms of its components to develop interactive applications and to explore the back channel (interactivity channel). As a product of this investigation, a prototype of Interactive TV Application Guide to promote citizenship through digital inclusion is presented.
