Web on TV

WSJ writes:

Now some of the biggest technology and media companies are trying to make it easier to watch Web-based content on TV sets, as well as on computers.

Those efforts, a major focus at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, eventually could have a major impact on the way consumers throughout the world watch television. While cable and satellite TV services offer hundreds of channels and up to thousands of video-on-demand choices, the amount of content available on the Web is virtually limitless.

“We’re going to see in 2006 and 2007 a much more well-established Internet access into televisions,” says Peter Weedfald, who heads the consumer-electronics business in the U.S. for Samsung Electronics Inc.
