Explanation:
What is Broadcast Carousel?
A broadcast carousel is a way of organising all of the information that Set Top Box applications might need from the digital TV stream. This is collected together and transmitted alongside normal TV programming.

Why Broadcast Carousel?
Broadcast digital TV is often a one-way transmission of programming. For example, you select between several TV programmes that are being broadcast at the same time. This broadcast is organised as a DVB stream - the worldwide standard which describes how digital TV programming is transmitted. When an application on a Digital TV Set Top Box (STB) requires a resource or file which is not described by DVB how can it find it within the stream?

Explanation:
When I worked in broadcasting in a less digital age, radio and TV stations had a device called a carousel, which was basically a rotating container of eight-track tapes on which were recorded advertisements. So although the technology is much more advanced today, I think the concept is still the same for digital TV: various programs are recorded on cassettes, CDs, DVDs, or some other medium for play at the behest of a subscriber.
