Broadcast data delivery is attractive for large-size data distribution where a large user community is connected to a server through a network. It is important to consider a broadcast scheduling method which minimizes the average response time. The scheme should also guarantee the expected waiting time at the time of request. In this paper, we propose a method which divides all titles into several groups and assigns FIFO to each group. The proposed method can guarantee the waiting time for each user at his request, and is superior to FIFO (in high load) and a fixed allocation method (in low load).
