IPTV. It’s like they took your DVR and recorded everything in the world you may ever have had a hint of curiosity about watching, and make it available over the internet. At least, that’s what it aspires to be. But with a few different providers actually starting to offer us Australians IPTV services worth watching, the question needs to be asked: Do you care?
The ABC led the way with iView, but BigPond has been offering TV and movies for years now, and Apple’s been pushing TV through iTunes for a while as well. But With TiVo launching Caspa late last year and Sony’s Bravia Internet Video launching today, this space is really starting to get interesting. Personally, I’m a huge fan – even though it’s in the early stages, the ability to watch shows whenever I want – even if I have to pay for it – on my big screen TV is a huge selling point.
But what about you?
