TV revolution: welcome to loungeroom 2.0

Postby sledge » Fri Jul 09, 2010 8:51 am

I can see this workin and basically u can do this now with the right equipment. :thumbleft:

A loungeroom revolution is brewing in Australia as an onslaught of technology providers vie for a slice of the home entertainment market once dominated by television networks.

The battle for our eyes is being fought on several fronts, according to a study commissioned by the Australian Communications and Media Authority, which revealed that one in five Australians had already viewed full-length television programs over the internet with one in eight full-length films online.

ISPs are working alongside various hardware and software partners to tie together packages that make it increasingly attractive to download movies, games and even favourite television shows via the internet.

Traditional TV networks have also been promoting 'catch-up' TV content which can be accessed online for those who missed the scheduled screening.

"With higher internet speeds and increasing bandwidth capacity, increasingly consumers are less restricted to viewing their favourite programs according to a predetermined schedule or on a single device, such as the family television," says ACMA Chairman, Chris Chapman. "Already, we've seen television 'catch-up' services gathering popularity in Australian households."

So where will that leave the giant flatscreen TV you so recently had mounted on the wall?

Given that many of the new breed of internet TV services incorporate set-top boxes, much of this new content will be routed seamlessly from your computer to your TV screen.

TV manufacturers such as Sony and Samsung are determined not to be left out of this converging landscape and have already begun showing off spanking new models loaded with useful web features and widgets for checking the weather, downloading movies or YouTube clips and even updating Twitter.

Even the internet search giant Google has jumped into the fray with some ambitious internet TV plans of its own, bringing the power of search to all the entertainment content available on the internet.

According to ACMA, traditional content viewing services such as free-to-air and subscription broadcasting are still "the overwhelming backbone for video and television viewing in Australia" but it warns that the barrage of new content channels will increase the fragmentation of audiences, with "unknown ramifications on content owners, distributors, broadcasters and regulators".

While it is unlikely there will be room for everyone to play in the lounge room of the future, there is no shortage of contenders prepared to try their hand. Here is round up of the key players in Australia.

I already have my external 'Computer' HDD with my downloaded movies/music/Tv series hooked up to my TV via Media Player adaptor which cost me about $45. Quite Neat

The Best Players from the article in my opinion is either fetch TV or Google TV

Is it legal to copy and paste copyrighted materials on forums? I saw many forums doing it, but i am surprised!
