Internet TV Boxes
There’s already a choice of net-connected boxes which are just ready and waiting for you to plug them in and have access to loads of different TV channels. These are already connected to pre-determined services and make life so easy for any techno-phobes out there. Repeat after me – Internet TV is your friend.
Roku – is a pre-loaded portal with Amazon Video on Demand, Netflix and MLB TV.
TiVO – goes one better in that it also connects to the above but you have the added option of cable and your usual over-the-air channels.
AppleTV – is pre-loaded to connect you with the iTunes Store.
Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii – can also stream you into Netflix and hey, if there’s nothing you want to watch on TV you can always choose to play games instead.
These are your Internet TV box options at the moment, but sure as eggs is eggs there’ll be plenty more where they came from pretty soon.
