In this paper, we consider a multi-user system called the group-broadcast system. In this scenario the users are divided into different groups. Users in each group are interested in a common information independent from that of other groups. Such a situation occurs for example in digital audio and video broadcast systems where the users are divided into various groups according to the shows they are interested in. The paper first obtains upper and lower bounds for the sum rate capacity. Then it looks at system capacity for the large number of users regime and fixed number of antennas. Finally, the case when the number of users and antennas grow simultaneously is studied. It is shown that in order to achieve a constant rate per user the number of transmit antennas should scale at least logarithmically in the number of users.
