1. Interactive digital television method for automotive car, truck or other vehicle group integrated sensing and billing service comprising steps of:

  • configuring a server to communicate via a wireless network to one or more mobile automotive car, truck or other vehicle client classified in a network client group, wherein the network client group comprises the at least one vehicle client and a residential interactive digital television device associated with the at least one vehicle client; and

    servicing the network client group by accessing electronically one or more sensor embedded in at least one of said one or more mobile automotive car, truck or other vehicle client via the wireless network when the accessed client is moving;

    wherein the server runs software for billing the network client group and sending a message according to the classification of the at least one accessed client via a wired network to the residential interactive digital television device associated with the at least one accessed client, the network client group comprising the sensed mobile automotive car, truck or other vehicle client and the billed residential device associated with the sensed mobile vehicle client, wherein the server automatically provides integrated sensing and billing services to said network client group respectively via wireless network access to sense said mobile vehicle client and wired network access to bill the associated residential interactive digital television device, whereby such integrated services enable real-time access to a database that commonly registers both the wirelessly sensed mobile automotive car, truck or other vehicle client as well as the residentially billed interactive digital television device associated with such particular wirelessly sensed vehicle client, such that both the registered wirelessly sensed mobile automotive car, truck or other vehicle client and the residentially billed interactive digital television device commonly registered therewith are thus each classified automatically in real-time by the software according to the database common registration as accessible collectively within the same network client group for providing the integrated wireless sensing and residential billing services.
