Can't remember when it was announced, but this "idea" has some years, they already presented some tv's with that chip and with the integration with a browser and wi-fi... Good idea
And, of course, this ties in nicely with their announcement about the WebM(?) video codec. Say what you like about Google, but they do have some clever people pushing them forward.
when we have a network that can cope with more than current demands - I'll look out for net tv.
Ummm net tv is already here (well, at least in the US). PlayOn + Hulu/Netflix. Although the dvr the google is bringing to the table is nice.
Google seems to be expanding it's business and it's "products" immensily and very quickly for the last 2 years! I wonder what they will venture into next! I look forward to this, i just hope the quality of the videos are better than some current online players knocking about
I wonder if they will release the software to the public.
Hmm I'm not so sure about this. My friends and I haven't watched tv in years (why would you use a system that requires controls your entertainment schedule based on programming times?). As such I haven't imagined myself using a tv without an htpc as it's input in, well, ever since I knew of the existence of a htpc. I suppose I'm not the target market though (and you never know, maybe piracy laws will eventually become so draconian I'll have to resort to conventional viewing measures once again. HA, who am I kidding, I would just stop watching tv).
