FCC pushes for Internet access on your TV


Recommended Posts

If federal regulators have their way, the next big thing on the tech horizon will be a brave new world of Internet-ready, work-with-any-network set-top boxes, offering consumers unprecedented multimedia options through their TVs, not just their computers.


And if this plays out as the Federal Communications Commission envisions, the world as cable companies know it will radically change, making the potential synergies of the Comcast-NBC deal all but obsolete.


"The consumer will be king," said Colin Crowell, senior counselor to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski. "You'll be able to get your own set-top box that does all the whiz-bang things you want it to do, and you'll be in control."

I already have all my multimedia running through my HDTV. I have my computer hooked up for HULU, YOUTUBE ETC. I have Xbox 360 which streams Netflix movies, and I can browse the net ;)


But what you are saying, will defiantly change the way we think of cable television! lol

I can be wrong - I'm not a technician ...

but its my idea that most of the plasma HDTV are already "internet-ready"

Most of them have an input to connect pc etc

My neighbour (he is a reseller of TV and audio) told Me that "scart" connections even gonna disappeare during the upcoming years and are even already replaced by digital inputs only
