Summary: 
Two types of multicast error control protocols based on a product code structure with or without interleaving are considered. The performances of these protocols are analyzed on burst error channels modeled by Gilbert's two-state Markov chain. The numerical results reveal that the interleaving does not always succeed in improving the performance of the protocol proposed in Part .
