Not surprisingly, those who are loudest with this concern are mainly high-tech technology companies that are either strong proponents of online advertising — like Google — and/or device hardware manufacturers — like Apple. These organizations hope to "improve the user experience" by introducing proprietary technologies — usually their own — that can integrate within the existing television environment."
