There’s already Internet television programming, so what not an Internet Television on which to watch it? Apparently they’ll be arriving next year from several Japanese electronics manufacturers:
Sony, Matsushita and three other Japanese electronics makers plan to start selling Internet televisions next year, the Nihon Keizai newspaper reported Thursday.
The new TVs aim to make accessing video and similar online content easier than with current methods such as computers, the newspaper said without saying how it got its information. The other companies are Sharp Corp., Toshiba Corp. and Hitachi Ltd.
They are jointly going to be publishing a common “Internet TV” standard which ought to be interesting since there are so many competing services and digital rights management schemes today.
