      This paper proposes a novel Resource Scheduling (RS) method by using Hybrid Broadcasting and Cellular Networks (HBCN). In this approach, the hot or common information is assigned with higher priority levels and is preferentially scheduled. The Equivalent Throughput (ET) and fairness are redefined and discussed. Simulations show the ETs of the networks are improved by using the proposed algorithms, the hotter the information, the more efficient the network. Moreover, the simulations also show the more cells in the coverage of the terrestrial broadcasting network, the more efficient of the HBCN.
