It's more complicated than that.  Consider a music video shown on TV.
The 'author' there is surely the artist who wrote the song, and the
'title' is the name of the song.  The fields we're discussing here are
the name of the _service_, or TV channel in common parlance, e.g. BBC2.
Finally, the _service provider_ is the name of whatever organisation
is running the transmitters.  It's been a while since I worked with
these things, so I may be somewhat off the mark with the details, but
you should get the general picture.
