1. A receiving device comprising:
circuitry; and
a memory storing a control program that, when executed by the circuitry, controls the circuitry to:
receive a broadcast signal including an application control descriptor,
wherein the application control descriptor includes an application control type that is one of
a first application control type that indicates whether an application can be acquired from a server based on the application control type without command information from the broadcast signal or application control data from the server,
a second application control type that indicates whether the application is to be acquired based on the command information from the broadcast signal, or
a third application control type that indicates whether the application is to be acquired based on the application control data from the server;
acquire the application from the server based on the application control descriptor;
if the application control type is the second application control type, determine a command type of the command information and perform a command on the application in accordance with the command type;
if the application control type is the third application control type, detect segment data within the application control data that is synchronized with a progress of the broadcast signal and perform an operation in accordance with the segment data; and
process a command in the receiving device based on the application control descriptor.
