A walled garden, with regards to media content, refers to a closed set or exclusive set of information services provided for users (a method of creating a monopoly or securing an information system). This is in contrast to providing consumers access to the open Internet for content and e-commerce. The term is often used to describe offerings from interactive television providers or mobile phone operators which provide custom content, and not simply common carrier functions.
A walled garden is a garden which is surrounded by high walls. Whilst these walls may now serve a decorative purpose, their original purpose was to shelter the plants within the garden from winds and frosts. The shelter provided can raise the ambient temperature within the garden by several degrees, thus permitting plants to be grown that would not survive in the natural climate of the location.
