A digital television system which processes television information in the form of a stream data packets representing video and audio information in compressed form, such as MPEG, includes on-screen display (OSD) provisions for displaying sophisticated graphics, such as animation, by storing graphics data in a read only memory (ROM) in the same compressed form as that used for the video information. The graphics data is transported to the same video decoding and decompression unit which processes the video data contained in the video packets to form digital signals representing video information in uncompressed form, where it is converted in the same manner as the video data to form graphic image data. A multiplexing arrangement is provided so that digital signals representing animation graphics can be multiplexed with digital signals representing static graphics image data derived from bit-mapped representations.
