A system and method are provided for presenting on a television, a combined display of information contained in an event database and television program video content. A set-top terminal receives as input, television program video content signals and information comprising an event database. The set-top terminal converts the information from the event database into a graphical format for display on a television with the television program video content. Updates to the event database are processed and displayed substantially in real-time. The event database may include information for televised events. The set-top terminal automatically tunes, at the viewer's request, to the event for which information is being displayed. Improved processes for combining television program video content and locally generated graphical images are also provided.
